At Nowlin Orthodontics, we are a kids’ orthodontist that can straighten your child’s teeth and improve their appearance. As children age, it can become difficult to live with a crooked smile. This is especially true as they enter their teenage years. If you live in the Tulsa area and what to help your child by improving their appearance, we recommend that you consider braces. Modern braces are an effective way for straightening teeth and aligning your child’s bite. In many cases, children suffer from an overbite, underbite, or crossbite in addition to a crooked smile. This can both negatively impact their appearance and make it uncomfortable to eat, speak and even sleep. Drs. Van and Ryan Nowlin can correct all of these issues with orthodontics treatments. During your initial consultation, we will examine your child’s teeth and take X-Rays in order to determine what their challenges are and the best way to correct them. If their bite is off, Drs. Van and Ryan Nowlin will make a recommendation for how to correct it while they are wearing braces. This may include using headgear or rubber bands. Both are typically worn temporarily as part of the orthodontics treatment. As a kids’ orthodontist, we can tell you what to expect in terms of treatment time and how long your child may need to use these additional solutions.
