At Star Kids Dental we strive to do our best for your child as if he/she was our own. We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help your child to prepare for the adult teeth or protect the adult teeth such as teeth cleaning, braces, and more.

How can I tell if my child needs braces?

The most accurate way to tell if your child’s needs braces is by having a pediatric dentist or orthodontist check the bite of the child. This allows them to see if the teeth are growing toward each other and take action early.

What is orthodontic treatment and when is it necessary?

Orthodontic treatment is the process of modifying or cleaning the teeth and gums to help the jaw structure and overall health of the mouth. It is necessary to help baby teeth to properly be cleaned and repaired as necessary to prevent problems to the adult teeth which later take their place. Such actions help prevent crooked teeth, cavities, pain in the gums, and more.

How long do treatments take?

A treatment can vary from several minutes to several years, based on what is necessary to help the child. A simple cleaning may take 15 minutes while treatments such as braces can take years to take effect.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a new style of wearable braces. Similar to a see-through cast for a leg or arm, Invisalign allows a child to have a natural look without braces meanwhile straightening out the teeth as braces would.

How much do braces cost?

The cost of braces varies on the type of braces, how much work is entailed, and how much insurance covers. We offer CareCredit for those who do not have an insurance plan. For a more accurate price and additional information please call our office to schedule an appointment.
