Pediatric Orthodontist Services, Available from The Super Dentists
The Super Dentists provides a range of orthodontic services for kids and teens throughout San Diego County at each of four locations in Kearny Mesa, Eastlake, Carmel Valley and Oceanside. Services include:
Phase 1 & Phase 2 Orthodontics
Many people believe that orthodontics is synonymous for braces, but orthodontic treatment should begin years before a child needs braces. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist by age seven. An orthodontist can begin treating orthodontic issues in baby teeth for problems such as an underbite in children as young as age four.
The Super Dentists have been recognized as one of the elite dental practices for creating beautiful smiles with Invisalign clear braces. Only two percent of orthodontists in the world are recognized as elite Invisalign providers. Invisalign San Diego patients have access to elite Invisalign practices throughout their community with The Super Dentists locations in Carmel Valley, Chula Vista, Eastlake, Kearny Mesa and Oceanside.
Invisalign® Teen Braces
Invisalign Teen uses the same technology as Invisalign, with a few added features designed exclusively for teens and kids. Because a busy teen’s lifestyle can make it easy to forget to wear the aligners, Invisalign for teens has a blue compliance indicator that fades with wear. There is also more room in the Invisalign for kids’ aligners to allow their adult teeth to grow in comfortably and without disrupting the straightening process.
No one will ever see that you’re wearing braces because Incognito braces are hidden from view on the backside of your teeth. Called “lingual braces” because they are on the tongue side, Incognito hidden braces are 100% customized one tooth at a time to follow the contours of your teeth for comfort and performance. Because each tooth is fitted individually with Incognito braces, you can choose to straighten all of your teeth, or just the from six that are most noticeable.
The Super Dentists invite you to show your personality with WildSmiles braces. Transform your smile into your own work of art. Using the technology of conventional braces to straighten teeth, WildSmiles are for those who embrace the experience of wearing braces.
Accelodontics is the most complete orthodontic and dental package for the perfect smile — and it’s only available at The Super Dentists because we invented it. Our exclusive five-step program is designed to give you straighter, whiter teeth in a fraction of the time of traditional braces.
ACCELEDENT® OR PROPEL
The Super Dentists understand that orthodontic patients would prefer a fast orthodontic treatment. Using AcceleDent or PROPEL can potentially reduce time in braces or aligners by as much as half the time. In addition to a fast orthodontic treatment time, AcceleDent or PROPEL also improves the patient experience by making treatment more comfortable.
Retainers & Retention
Once braces are removed and teeth look great, a teeth retainer must be worn routinely to keep teeth in their new positions. To make sure your teeth don’t go back to their pre-treatment places, The Super Dentists encourage you to wear your teeth retainer as prescribed. If your retainer is misplaced, call the office immediately to get a replacement retainer.
The Super Dentists are experts at diagnosing and fixing oral problems in kids, teens and adults. Part of creating a beautiful smile includes working with the shape of the mouth and jaw. The Super Dentists use many types of orthodontic appliances to help correct issues for comfort and health as well as aesthetics. Some common types of orthodontic appliances that are used by The Super Dentists include Herbst, MARA, Rapid Palatial Expander, Lingual Arch, Twin Blocks and Orthodontic Elastics.
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, usually erupt in the late teen years to middle twenties. The Super Dentists will track your children’s wisdom teeth development as they age. Because wisdom teeth can affect other teeth as they grow, there are occasions when wisdom teeth removal is necessary.
Orthognathic surgery is corrective jaw surgery to treat and fix abnormalities of the facial bones, such as the jaws. Often an issue with the jawbones can cause difficulty chewing, talking, sleeping, breathing and other routine activities.
Receiving orthodontic care earlier rather than later can greatly benefit the development of your child’s teeth and mouth, as well as influence their future oral health. Have your child evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven, or sooner if there are signs of orthodontic problems, including...
The Super Dentists believe that a healthy lifestyle should include physical activity. For some sports and recreational activities, a mouthguard can protect your teeth while you play. Mouthguards are designed to cushion your teeth to prevent tooth loss or injury to your mouth.
Adult orthodontics enable adults to straighten the teeth and reduce the risk of cavities, tooth decay and other oral health issues. Perhaps most important, adult orthodontics can make it easy for adults to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. Now, The Super Dentists of San Diego provides many safe, effective adult orthodontics treatments to help adults get the best smile possible.

Here’s a closer look at some of the most common orthodontic dentistry questions:
- At What Age Should My Child Get Braces?
Braces can be installed at any age. However, many dentists recommend braces for children between the ages of 10 and 14.
At this time, the child’s head and mouth are still growing, which makes it easier to move the teeth to their ideal location. If an experienced orthodontist has not seen by your pre-teen, you may want to schedule an appointment today. The Super Dentists orthodontists are skilled in straightening teeth and will let you know if your child needs braces.
- How Do Orthodontists Put on Braces?
Orthodontists commonly will spend one to two hours installing braces.
First, the orthodontist will clean a child’s mouth and ensure his or her teeth are dry. Next, the orthodontist will apply bonding glue to the teeth and attach brackets for the braces. And for the final step, the orthodontist will place the archwire in the brackets and secure it with elastic bands.
The braces installation procedure is usually painless. When the bonding glue is applied to the teeth, a child may experience an unpleasant taste in his or her mouth that will dissipate quickly. Furthermore, a child’s teeth and mouth will be sore as he or she adjusts to the braces after the procedure, but this soreness should go away within about a week.
Throughout the entire braces installation process, the dental care professionals at The Super Dentists ensure your child’s utmost comfort and confidence. We’ve installed braces on hundreds of area patients, and our considerable experience means that your child will receive the best care, professional courtesy, and ongoing support.
- How Young Is Too Young for Braces?
Every patient is different, and early orthodontic treatment may prove to be a viable option to reduce the risk of serious oral health problems from developing down the line.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. At this time, a pediatric orthodontist will be able to pinpoint developmental oral health issues that could become long-term problems. Common orthodontic problems such as crowding, premature loss of baby teeth and cross bites may lead to the implementation of braces or other oral health treatments.
Before a child gets braces, it is important for a parent to discuss the procedure with his or her son or daughter. By doing so, this child will understand exactly what to expect from the installation procedure, along with how braces will help improve his or her teeth. The Super Dentists can discuss all about braces with you and your child to better prepare you both for the process.
- How Long Will I Need Braces?
For children, it is common to wear braces for one to two years. And in some cases, kids may need to wear braces for up to three years.
Comparatively, adult braces treatments may require more time than children’s treatments because their bones have finished growing. Adults frequently wear braces for 18 months to three years. However, there are new dental technologies available to accelerate the time in braces. The Super Dentists use both AcceleDent and PROPEL to reduce time in braces by about half the time.
Also, both children and adults may need to wear a retainer after their braces are removed to help maintain the results of a braces treatment.
The Super Dentists also offer Acceledontics, a next-generation orthodontic procedure and process that offers the most advanced technology, less time in braces, and an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces. Thanks to our AADvance Braces and AADvance Auxiliary Devices, we’ve made braces more accessible and affordable than ever before – without the hassles usually associated with braces. The Super Dentists also offer AADvance Whitening, a revolutionary teeth whitening process that can help improve your smile in a matter of minutes. For more information about our groundbreaking orthodontic processes, please visit our Acceledontics website.
- How Do I Know If My Child Needs Braces?
There are many key indicators that can help determine if braces are right for your child, including:
- Your child’s teeth appear crowded or crooked
- Your child’s jaw shifts or make noises
- Your child commonly bites the sides or roof of his or her mouth
- Your child often struggles to chew food
- Your child frequently breathes through his or her mouth
The orthodontic professionals at The Super Dentist can work with you and your child to determine the feasibility of braces. We realize that getting braces is one of life’s most anxious times – especially for children! Our careful, collaborative process ensures that you and your child come first, and we’ll gladly answer any questions you have about braces.
If your son or daughter encounters any of these issues, you should consider a pediatric orthodontic evaluation to determine if braces will serve as a viable option to help him or her overcome such problems. The Super Dentists can let you know if your child needs braces or another treatment to help with their dental issue.
- Can I Get Braces As an Adult?
Yes! Both children and adults can reap the benefits of braces. Perhaps you had braces as a kid and now your teeth have shifted. The Super Dentists have an array of teeth straightening methods that weren’t around when you were a kid. From their exclusive AADvance Braces™ to Invisalign and Incognito, ask The Super Dentists if you would be a good candidate for braces.
- Why Do Kids Need Braces?
For children, crooked or crowded teeth, overbites or underbites may cause long-lasting oral health problems if they are not treated. In addition, incorrect jaw position and disorders may result in chewing and speaking problems that can be exceedingly difficult to repair as a child ages.
Braces, however, can help correct these problems at an early age. Thus, braces can correct many oral health issues to provide significant value for your child and enable him or her to enjoy a healthy smile for a lifetime.
- What Should I Do If My Child Needs Braces?
Simply meet with a pediatric orthodontist for an evaluation, and your child will be able to get the support that he or she needs and find out how braces can help improve his or her smile. The Super Dentists will let you know all that needs to be done if your child needs braces.
- Can Braces Fix an Overbite?
According to the American Dental Association, an overbite typically can be treated within one to three years with braces.
An overbite occurs when the top teeth vertically overlap the bottom teeth. This issue is most commonly seen in children. And if left untreated, an overbite may cause gum disease, tooth decay and other oral health problems that may affect a child’s teeth, along with his or her speech and chewing.
Fortunately, braces can be adjusted to even out the top and bottom teeth. That way, braces can help improve a child’s smile and reduce the risk of many common oral health problems.
