Regular eye exams are an essential part of keeping both babies, kids and teens on track for educational, social, and developmental success. Children with vision issues often have trouble in school, with sports, interacting with other children and day-to-day functioning. A vision check-up is a great way to keep your child on track for success.

Farsightedness, also known as Hyperopia, is another common condition where you can see objects that are far away better than objects up close. When a child has farsightedness the light rays in their eyes will focus behind the retinas surface instead of directly on it, making close-up objects blurry...more

Astigmatism is a common vision condition in which your eye isnt completely round which can blur objects both near and far due to the eye not being able to focus. Astigmatism in kids can be difficult to diagnose because many kids dont recognize the blurriness they see and they view it as normal. Astigmatism...more

A lazy eye, also known as Amblyopia, is a vision condition where one of the eyes does not refract light properly causing it to underperform. When a child has a lazy eye the bodys response is to follow the direction of the normally performing eye impacting their depth perception. This condition starts in...more

Orthodontic Braces are a great solution to fixing the alignment of the jaw, adjusting the spacing of the teeth, and increasing your kids or teens confidence and self-esteem. The benefits of braces treatments have many positive side-effects for overall dental health as well, including:

Finding the right braces is the first step of the journey for creating a perfect smile. There are several types of braces commonly used today such as traditional metal braces, ceramic or porcelain braces, and removable aligners. Well help you find the best type for your child and teen based on your treatment plan, cost, and desired appearance.

  • Traditional Metal Braces are the most common type of braces, especially for children. Metal braces are highly effective and the most affordable type of orthodontic braces. Metal braces allow the orthodontist to easily and accurately complete monthly visits crafting a perfect smile. Plus, kids and teens have an awesome selection of elastic band colors to mix and match to achieve a look they love!
  • Ceramic or porcelain braces function just like metal braces, however the brackets are less noticeable and the wires are colored to blend in with your child or teens teeth. Clear braces are more expensive than metal braces and can discolor if not regularly cleaned. If you are looking for a less noticeable appearance these are a great option.
  • Removable aligners have become a popular choice in recent years. They are transparent trays that rest on top of the teeth that can be removed during meal times and other activities. Removable aligners are not able to correct significant bite problems and are not usually recommended for children due to the added cost and level of personal responsibility required during treatment. If you are looking for a less noticeable option to correct alignment issues, this may be the right treatment option for you.
  • No insurance, No problem: For adults and children without insurance coverage, we offer a number of affordable payment plans, our orthodontic coordinators can explain these options to determine a plan that works best for you.

    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening no later than age seven. By this age, it will be clear if a child has any jaw alignment problems, overcrowding, overbite or underbite, cross-bite, or additional orthodontic problems impacting a childs mouth. The earlier the orthodontic evaluation, the quicker we can determine if braces are required and what treatment plan is best.

    Since Medicaid covers procedures that are medically necessary, orthodontic treatment is could be covered for children. If your child has an underbite, overbite, crossbite or severe crowding it might be time to consider braces for kids with Medicaid.

    When a dentist that accepts Medicaid conducts an orthodontic evaluation on your child, they will determine a recommended treatment plan. As part of this, they assess whether Medicaid is likely to cover the orthodontic treatment or not. Medicaid knows that braces can be an important treatment to ensure lifelong oral health for kids. As a dentist that accepts Medicaid, we will manage the full Medicaid approval process which includes submitting the appropriate documents and patient records. Then, Medicaid examiners will look at what we submitted and determine if your childs recommended orthodontic treatment will be covered. Medicaid will notify you and our office if the treatment is approved or declined.

    The American Association of Orthodontists recommend children receive their first orthodontic screening by the time they turn 7. At this age, major jaw and tooth alignment problems will be visible. As with any health intervention, the earlier a problem is identified, the easier it is to create a treatment plan and schedule. Some issues that are treated by braces include:

    If your child needs orthodontic treatment, it will be an improvement that will last a lifetime. Braces fix more than crooked teeth to create a winning smile. In addition to straightening out your childs teeth, braces also correct bite and tooth alignment. This is important to:

    There are other options for braces that are less noticeable than the metal brackets. Some of our older patients like that ceramic or porcelain braces blend in with their teeth. There are also clear braces, but these are more expensive than metal braces and can discolor if not cleaned regularly. Then, there are removable aligners such as Invisalign. These are transparent trays that can be removed during mealtimes. Removable aligners are popular with adults and older kids, but they arent appropriate to treat significant bite problems. We dont recommend removable aligners for most children because they require more responsibility to care for properly.

    Sometimes, the orthodontist will recommend two phases of braces depending on the developmental stage of a childs teeth. The first phase might begin around age 7 to 10 years of age to correct issues with your childs primary teeth that could impact the arrival of permanent teeth. During this time, the jaw bones and palette are more pliable.

    Around the age of 12, a second phase might be recommended. These braces straighten out the permanent teeth. The time your child will be in braces is dependent on their treatment plan and how well they follow the orthodontists instructions. It can range from 9 months to 30 months.

    When your child has braces, it can be more difficult to brush and floss teeth properly, but its very important. Encourage your child with braces to rinse their mouths with water frequently. This helps wash away food particles and restore the pH levels in the mouth to neutral. Acidic foods can wear away tooth enamel.

    When your child wears braces, we suggest they brush their teeth after every meal. Your child should pay special attention to their gum line and then focus on brushing above, below and on each bracket. Flossing daily is also critical especially when your child has braces.

    Professional and quick service for my 3 year old daughter. The staff was friendly and they gave her lots of freebies (toothbrushes, toothpaste and stickers). My daughter looks forward to going to Adventure Dental again.

    My daughter had an appointment at 10:30am (we were on time) and the staff did not call her back until 11:45! Also that was after I inquired multiple times as to why no one had called her back yet, when he appointment was over an hour prior. Not cool

    Our appointment was at 12:15 but we were not seen until 12:35-40. Though I was told as soon as I got there, it will be a wait because they are behind, it is still tough when I have an aggressive autistic child and a second child on the spectrum as well and trying to control the both of them, so one does not bump into other children and the other child stays calm, and who can go off at any moment, is not an ideal situation. I am proud to say that my son did stay calm, just his normal happy noises. Then, I had to go back because the doctor forgot to sign off on my other child's medical form for school, so I had to go back up there hoping that is not an issue because I called the day before I went and I could not reach them at all, so I took the chance. As a first-time patient on the dental side (one of my kids came for vision in the past), it was a rough start, but I will say the staff was great, they were nice and patient with both kids, so I will give them that and when I went back to get the paperwork signed, it was fairly quick. We will be back in a week for vision but an early appointment this time. Maybe that will make all the difference.

    Staff was professional and answered all of my questions. They were very patient with my 3yo who kept trying to hold the equipment because he was confident he could do the cleaning himself.

    At first I wasn't going to leave a review, sometimes I speak too soon. This is the best dentist I have ever taken my son. The people are so polite and up beat. Always smiling and always saying something nice. My son loves coming here more than school. Thank you so much for being aware of the staff hired. This place is doing a great job. It's also very clean and neat. The vision side is the same. Simply MARVELOUS.
