Kids Orthodontic Services at NCOSO
Childhood is one of the most crucial periods in our lives for healthy oral hygiene. At NCOSO, we believe that kids of all ages can benefit from strong, healthy teeth and we can help you achieve that! Our doctors and surgeons have worked with and befriended thousands of kids over the years allowing us to better inform, prepare, and comfort patients undergoing treatment.
Naturally, some children may experience environmental anxiety or stress when coming into our offices due to their new and unknown surroundings; however, we’d like to combat those feelings of unsteadiness! By building a trusting relationship with parent and patient, we aim to create a stress-free environment. We also maintain open and honest communication.
What to Expect at Your Child’s First Orthodontic Visit
When visiting us during the initial consultation and evaluation we will:
- Review your child’s dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan for your child
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
- Review our free PatientHub Rewards system – to win free prizes and gift cards!
Following your initial consultation, our team will schedule your child’s first bonding appointment with NCOSO according to your schedule! During the first appointment, our orthodontists will be able to introduce and place your child’s new orthodontic appliance or have your child fit for Invisalign. This first appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure your child’s experience is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Kids Invisalign Treatment at NCOSO
Our offices are happily offering the latest in advanced clear aligner technology through Invisalign clear aligners! These aligners are perfect for children since they allow easy movements without restricting your child’s diet or having to use any goopy molds for impressions. Find out more about your child’s Invisalign options by contacting us today or requesting a FREE Invisalign consultation.
Expose & Bond Treatment at NCOSO
Our practice offers Expose and Bond treatment for children in the Triangle and Triad NC area to help pull certain teeth into place. An expose and bond is a technique involved in aiding the eruption of any impacted tooth in the upper or lower jaw, but most commonly they are applied to the maxillary canine teeth.
Early recognition of an impacted canine tooth is the key to successful treatment. The older the patient, the more likely an impacted eyetooth will not erupt by nature’s forces alone, even if space is available for the tooth to fit in the dental arch. First, the impacted tooth is exposed. Then a bracket is bonded to the tooth which can be pulled slowly over time into place.
