Kid’s Orthodontics 

Tooth alignment issues often begin during childhood. At Magicland Children’s Dental, our children’s orthodontics program is designed to help address such problems and help our younger patients in Greater Los Angeles area enjoy their smiles to the fullest.

Early Intervention

At Magicland Children’s Dental, we recognize that early intervention can often help kids avoid future orthodontic complications. Our children’s orthodontics program aims to identify alignment issues at the earliest possible state and incorporate preventative measures to minimize the overall scope of treatment.

Gentle Care

At Magicland Children’s Dental, we go out of our way to cater to kids. We understand that orthodontic treatment can be unappealing, if not frightening, to younger patients, so we do everything we can to put your child at ease. Our children’s orthodontics program is about more than just proper tooth alignment; it’s about making your child feel comfortable with his or her treatment every step of the way.

FAQ

If you’ve ever wondered about the difference between a dentist and orthodontist, you’re not alone. Dentistry covers a broad category of medicine that deals with the teeth, gums, facial nerves and jaw. As a specialized form of dentistry, orthodontics focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic devices are designed to improve your smile, bite and overall appearance. Orthodontists use various devices to move teeth safely and gradually.
Braces and aligners are orthodontic devices that apply gentle pressure to the teeth to adjust their position and alignment over time. Braces attach to the teeth and use tensioned wires to reposition teeth over an extended treatment period. Aligners are removable trays that gradually bring teeth into proper alignment.
Our orthodontic experts recommend starting orthodontic treatment during childhood when it’s the easiest to make adjustments to the teeth and jaw. In reality, however, it’s never too late to get adult braces or aligners. Orthodontic treatment can help improve your dental health and appearance at any age.
If your mouth is overcrowded or you have a tooth that’s creating problems, you may need to have a tooth extracted. This will create extra room in your mouth for your remaining teeth to align properly. Your orthodontist will carefully consider the size and shape of your mouth before recommending any extraction.
Your orthodontist will adjust the tension on your braces every few weeks. Your teeth may feel pressure following these adjustments. As the teeth shift in response to the adjustment, the pressure will subside.
Sticky, chewy or hard foods can be damaging to braces. For example, sticky foods like gum and taffy can stick to your bands and wires pulling them off your teeth. Hard, crunchy foods can lead to broken brackets. If a food typically requires a large bite to eat (such as a hamburger, steak or apple), consider cutting it into smaller bites that you can pop into your mouth. It’s also wise to limit sugary foods to help protect your teeth from decay.
The best thing you can do to keep your teeth clean is to brush your teeth regularly — preferably after every time you eat or drink. Since braces can create hidden areas where food gets trapped, take your time when brushing. Tools such as an electric toothbrush and special toothpaste for sensitivity may make teeth cleaning easier and more effective. Remember to schedule regular dental cleanings with your dentist while you have braces.
If you’re wondering about caring for your teeth after braces, wearing your retainer is one of the most important steps. Once your braces are removed, you should wear your retainer day and night for about the same amount of time as your overall orthodontic treatment program. Following that period, you may wear your retainer at night for maintenance. Keep in mind that wearing your retainer regularly prevents your teeth from returning to their original position.
