When to start orthodontic treatment?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation occurs at the first sign of orthodontic concerns or by age seven. Treatment may not be necessary, but a free consultation exam allows Dr. Duffy, our Broken Arrow and Owasso pediatric orthodontist, to work with your general dentist to provide you with the best dental health to last a lifetime.

Early evaluation gives you and Dr. Duffy options. As one of the best pediatric orthodontists in Greater Tulsa, Dr. Duffy can identify any orthodontic issues early, giving him more treatment options and preventing more serious – and potentially more expensive – problems later. For each patient who needs treatment, there is an ideal time to begin to achieve the best results, and as one of the best orthodontists near you, Dr. Duffy can help you determine when and if your child needs orthodontic treatment in Broken Arrow or Owasso, Oklahoma.

Two-Phase treatment

While most children won’t need it, our Broken Arrow and Owasso orthodontist for kids can apply a two-phase treatment to correct any early orthodontic issues.

  • Phase One: The first phase of treatment usually occurs when the patient is between ages 7 and 10 and still has their primary teeth. Orthodontic appliances, such as a palatal expander or kids’ braces, may be placed to prevent a problem from occurring, correct a current issue, or help direct jawbone growth. During this first phase of treatment, we can correct problems with the alignment of the face, teeth, jaws and gums.
  • Phase Two: There will be a resting period between the two phases, and then beginning around adolescence, we’ll start Phase-Two treatment, concentrating on teeth alignment with braces or Invisalign® Teen.

Our kids’ braces

We offer a variety of braces for kids to help them show off their style. Your child can even customize their braces colors with different elastics your kids’ orthodontist can switch out at each appointment.

  • Metal braces
  • Clear braces
  • Iconix gold braces

How much do braces cost for kids?

The cost of braces for kids depends on their orthodontic issues and how long their individual treatment will take based on those issues. At your kid’s free consultation with our children’s orthodontist, we will provide a full treatment cost breakdown, and discuss our payment options with you, including zero-interest flexible financing. We also accept most dental insurance!
