Pediatric Dentistry AND Orthodontics under one roof; what a perfect pairing! Pediatric Dentistry of Central Florida is in a unique position to be able to offer orthodontic therapy in conjunction with pediatric dental care. The growth and development of your child is taken very seriously. Pediatric dentists are trained in evaluating the growth and the development of your child’s orofacial complex (face, mouth, lips jaws and teeth) and can anticipate your child’s need to receive orthodontic intervention. Orthodontists are trained in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dentofacial deformities, irregularities in tooth position and bite correction. Science and experience tell us that the simplest corrections at a young age go a very long way to minimizing and simplifying future orthodontic needs. Should orthodontic intervention be in your child’s best interest, our pediatric dentist will recommend the best course of treatment for him/her.
When your child’s orthodontic needs demand the attention of an orthodontist, an appropriate referral will be provided. Having an orthodontist team member effectively increases the efficiency and timing of orthodontic evaluation and treatment.
