Your teen’s smile is an investment in their confidence and health so who you choose matters. At Bubble Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics we understand the confidence that a healthy, straight, beautiful smile brings. Our doctors and knowledgeable staff are committed to proving your child with the best-individualized care and treatment.
As important as appearance can be, the benefit of braces goes beyond just esthetics. Straighter teeth are easier to brush, clean, and floss! The ability to take better care of the teeth through oral hygiene helps prevent future cavities and periodontal disease. Properly aligned teeth and jaws may also alleviate unnecessary wear and grinding as a bad “bite” can lead to uneven wear, fractures of teeth, bone loss or jaw joint pain.
We are committed to delivering the highest quality orthodontic care, patient experience and customer service. While our office is a place where you and your child can relax and feel comfortable, it’s also high tech. We use leading-edge technology that ensures the most accurate diagnostics and monitoring of your progress.
- iTero – digitally scans the mouths of patients creating a three-dimensional dental images in minutes. This 3D image helps our orthodontists diagnose orthodontic problems and develop the best treatment plans. No more goopy impression trays that are uncomfortable and causes gagging in some patients.
- Indirect Bonding of Braces- Indirect bonding is a method of applying brackets for braces to the teeth in such a manner that an entire set of braces can be applied in less than an hour. By using indirect bonding we are able to increase patient comfort and ensure the accuracy of bracket placement for a better outcome.
- CBCT – cone beam computed tomography offers a 3D view of the mouth and jaw to assess and treat difficult cases.
Traditional Braces for Kids and Teens
As a patient of Bubble, you can take advantage of traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
The Invisalign Teen system straightens your teeth with custom-made clear aligners that are comfortable and practically invisible. Invisalign Teen can be used to correct many common orthodontic conditions without wires or metal braces. These conditions include crowding, spacing, cross bites, overbites and under bites. Visit our Invisalign page for more information on the benefits of Invisalign clear aligners.
At Bubble Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics we believe that there is no single treatment that corrects every smile. By approaching orthodontics as an art as well as a science, we examine each person’s unique structure during an initial consultation before deciding with the patient the best course of orthodontic treatment. Due to our commitment to the latest advances in orthodontic technology, we are able to offer patients the treatment that will most successfully fulfill their needs and aesthetic preferences.
