Dr. Robert Lapinski knows the value of treating children early with functional appliances. Did you know that a narrow mouth arch, overbite, narrow jaw, and crowded teeth can cause many problems in your child's well being? These can include:
Airway problems & poor sleep habits
Earaches (Inner Ear)
Stuffiness and ringing in ears
Speech development problems
Smiles & facial development
By seeking early treatment, and developing the arches at an early age, the crowding of permanent teeth and the need to remove adult teeth may be eliminated. Phase One treatment with functional appliances is an ideal first step for children ages 5-12. Phase Two treatment with braces is perfect for ages 12-14. We have different colored bands to make all kids happy. Contact Dr. Lapinski as early as possible to diagnose teeth and jaw problems.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. These are matched to your mouth using the latest in 3-D computer technology. There are no metal wires or brackets and they are completely removable so comfort, eating, brushing and flossing are not a problem. Only a doctor who has been trained and certified can treat using Invisalign. Dr. Lapinski is Invisalign certified and will determine if this teeth straightening procedure is right for you.
