Pediatric Orthodontics

Portland Pediatric Orthodontics

If your child is in need of orthodontic treatment, Rockwood Orthodontics will walk you through each step necessary in your child's pediatric treatment.  Pediatric practices are just for children and are best carried out around the age of 7 years old, when most children's first molars have grown in.  The first appointment is to decide if treatment is needed through a thorough examination (photographs, x-rays, etc), and where to begin if it is.  If Dr. Bedont has determined treatment is needed, impressions of your child's teeth will be taken in addition to the examination.  The impressions will be used to determine an individualized treatment for your child.  Our staff will review your insurance benefits and give you an estimate of the treatment cost at the time of the appointment.

If you're considering treatment for your child, get in touch with Rockwood Orthodontics and Dr. Bedont will determine if pediatric treatment is required for your child.
