Perfecting Your Child's Smile
Straightening your child's teeth and perfecting their smile is important and possible at any age. Using orthodontic braces is a common technique used to straighten teeth. At Growing Smiles, we offer the latest in orthodontic procedures.
Braces can help improve your child's bite, prevent problems such as increased plaque and bacteria around teeth and gums, and improve their appearance and confidence level.
Adults Need Braces Too
We also offer orthodontic braces to adults. It's never too late to correct your teeth and improve your smile. Though most orthodontic patients are children and teens, the American Association of Orthodontists states that one in five are adults.
iTero® Digital Scanning
Our office uses iTero® digital scanning to view three-dimensional images of the inside of your mouth. iTero digital imaging is a state-of-the-art technology that captures high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures, making it easy for our dentist and team to diagnose problems and provide effective treatments. The iTero scanner captures up to 20 images per second in full color, allowing us to easily distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue, build accurate digital models of your mouth, and create appliances and restorations that fit and function better. iTero technology can even simulate your treatment outcome to show you what your end result should look like!
When our dentist or hygiene team scan your mouth, a small wand will be used to quickly and comfortably scan the inside of your mouth. As the wand passes over your teeth, the images captured will be processed simultaneously to provide an immediate, complete and highly accurate image of your mouth. The pictures are even saved automatically every few seconds, so there is no need for you to sit through a second scan.

Ortho Tips & Tricks!
Even though your braces and wires are metal, they are fragile and can be damaged by eating the wrong foods. Foods that cannot be cleaned off your braces can lead to decay of your teeth and discoloration, which will lead to longer treatment times. We want to ensure you're on your way to a healthy and happy smile so here are some tips & tricks for what NOT to eat while you have braces.
(p.s. Be sure to avoid chewing on things like pencils, pens, and fingernails!)
