Orthodontics for Kids

Happy Kid | Orthodontic Care in Gillette, WY

At Cometti Orthodontics, we believe that early orthodontic treatment is essential to ensuring healthy teeth, optimal jaw growth, and a beautiful smile. Our orthodontic services for kids are designed to identify and treat common orthodontic problems early on, which can prevent more serious problems from developing later in life.

When to Begin Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. This is because many common orthodontic problems can be identified and treated early, before they become more serious. Early treatment can also help prevent more invasive treatment later in life.

Common Orthodontic Problems in Kids

Our passion for early orthodontic treatment stems from the ability to positively influence jaw growth and development most effectively at younger ages. Crowding, spacing issues, and bite problems may indicate other underlying health issues that can be aided by orthodontic treatment in collaboration with other health professionals. Discovering and addressing these issues early is essential to optimal growth for your child.

Airway and Growth Concerns:

  • Snoring

  • Mouth-breathing

  • Tongue/Lip-Ties

  • Oral Habits

  • Enlarged Tonsils and Adenoids

  • Teeth Grinding

  • Bed-Wetting

  • Sleep Apnea

*Note: these are all possible signs of inadequate airway and/or disordered breathing, which can have a negative effect on your child’s growth and often manifest with orthodontic problems such as crowding, narrow arches, and other bite problems. As an expert in growth and development of the face and jaws, Dr. Cometti is passionate about screening for these issues and working with other health professionals to help kids grow and develop to their maximum potential.
