Orthodontics for Children

If your child has a biting problem, crooked or crowded teeth, or any other orthodontic problem, it is important to seek professional help as soon as possible. Many orthodontic issues can be reversed and treated, or at the very least, prevented from getting worse–if they are caught early enough. Ideally, every child should have an orthodontic assessment by the time he or she is 7 years of age, when problems are still mostly reversible and the jaw is growing. At this age, your child’s teeth and jaws begin to take position and shape. Our dentists will evaluate factors such as how the teeth are aligned and offer early treatment.

Visit Smiles on Queen for interceptive treatment

When a child is between the ages of 6 and 10 years old, the dentist may recommend interceptive care in order to reverse crossbites or other jaw or dental malformations.

At Smiles on Queen, we also offer comprehensive treatment once the adult teeth have started erupting. This is usually from the age of 12. From age 12, a number of orthodontic treatments can be recommended such as braces which act by slowly repositioning the teeth and jaws into alignment.

Why orthodontic treatment is important

When kids reach the age of 7, many of them have a combination of baby teeth and adult teeth. It is easier for an orthodontist to perform an evaluation and take note of problems that could be treated early without the need for surgery. Therefore, orthodontics for children allows you to:

  • Correct and guide the development of your child’s permanent teeth
  • Improve your child’s smile by creating more space for crowded teeth
  • Avoid the need to have permanent tooth extractions
  • Correct habits such as thumb sucking and minor speech issues.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
