Did your kid’s teeth change over the Summer? It is not uncommon for pre-teens and teenagers to have dramatic teeth changes. Nevertheless, teeth rarely self-correct and shift into optimal places. They almost always need a little help.
Dr. Michael Larson of Yuba City Orthodontics has assisted hundreds upon hundreds of individuals with braces. We know what it is like to help school-aged children to straighten their teeth with braces. Getting braces may not appear to be fun, but the longterm effects of them does improve lives. If you believe your child may require braces, give us a call or schedule an appointment online for a consultation. We’d enjoy sitting down with you and your child.
What To Expect During Your Child’s Consultation
We always want you and your child to be comfortable and relaxed. Therefore, during the consultation, Dr. Larson will walk you through the entire process. As we examine your child’s teeth, you can expect a through explanation of the causes. We’ll also recommend a treatment, and upon approval, al prepares a treatment plan. At Yuba City Orthodontics, you’ll never be blindsided by unknown procedures or given cookie-cut responses to your questions. Additionally, we want your child to be as active in this process as possible. We’ve found that when child patients are active participants from the very beginning of acquiring braces, they tend to keep up with the daily care required by the treatment.
