Enjoy Multiple Options for Orthodontic Treatment

At Phillips Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces and orthodontics for children to help them achieve a beautiful, straight smile, from the durability and precision of self-ligating braces to the discretion and convenience of Invisalign® treatment.

Patients often choose our Empower® self-ligating braces, which allow the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably than traditional braces. In addition, Dr. Phillips is a Platinum provider of treatment with Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®, for patients who want the ease of clear aligners that are both nearly invisible AND removable. If you choose to straighten your child’s teeth with the patented Invisalign® treatment system, you will also appreciate that you don’t have to worry about any dietary or lifestyle restrictions throughout the entire treatment.

Does Your Child Need an Early Orthodontic Evaluation?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child’s initial orthodontic evaluation occur by age 7 – the time when adult teeth are erupting. At Phillips Orthodontics, we evaluate erupting teeth to detect issues such as a possible overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. We can tell if your child will benefit from early treatment, as many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. Beginning treatment at this optimal time not only ensures the greatest result but also means less time and expense down the road.

You will likely be relieved to learn that “early orthodontics” at Phillips Orthodontics is NOT about your child getting braces, but about your child’s overall oral health and jaw alignment. Our early evaluation is not simply about aesthetics but will help guide the growth and development of your child’s jaw and teeth – preventing more serious problems later.
