Kids

Childhood: 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.

When visiting us during the initial consultation and evaluation we will:

  • Review your 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
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Following your initial consultation, our team will schedule your child’s first 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.

We do extractions of primary and permanent teeth depending on orthodontic needs (spacing issues, etc.) and we also do Expose and Bonds to help pull certain teeth into place. The techniques involved to aid eruption can be applied to any impacted tooth in the upper or lower jaw, but most commonly they are applied to the maxillary canine teeth.

Early recognition of impacted canine is the key to successful treatment. The older the patient, the more likely an impacted eye tooth will not erupt by nature’s forces alone, even if the space is available for the tooth to fit in the dental arch.

First, they expose the impacted tooth and then they bond a bracket to the tooth which can be pulled slowly over time into place.

 

Teens

The teenage years for many is a time of change, learning to grow into a young adult, and, most importantly, making memories. Pictures that depict memories of prom, football games, and vacations with friends will be treasured for years to come!

Our staff has assisted thousands of teenagers with orthodontic services and oral surgery, and we know the best and most effective approaches to communicate with patients of all ages. From our initial consultation until the day your teenager gets his or her braces taken off, we will do our best to build a trusting relationship and make your teen’s experience an enjoyable one.

During your first visit and initial consultation our staff will:

  • Review your 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

This first appointment will take about an hour and during this time we will make certain the patient is comfortable during the entire procedure.
