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 has been recognized as one of the elite dental practices for creating beautiful smiles with clear aligners. San Diego patients can receive elite clear alginers at The Super Dentists locations in Carmel Valley, Eastlake, Escondido, Kearny Mesa and Oceanside.
Clear Aligners Teen uses the same technology as Clear Aligners, 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, Clear Aligners for teens has a blue compliance indicator that fades with wear. There is also more room in Clear Aligners 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 placed on the backside of the teeth, completely hidden from view. 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 fix those 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.
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. Creating a beautiful smile includes working with the shape of the mouth and jaw. The Super Dentists uses many types of orthodontic appliances to help correct issues for comfort and health as well as aesthetics.
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, usually erupt in the late teen years to mid-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 removing wisdom teeth 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.
The Super Dentists believes a healthy lifestyle should include physical activity. For some sports and recreational activities, a mouthguard cushions your teeth to prevent tooth loss or injury to your mouth. There are various types of mouthguards, but The Super Dentists recommends considering a custom-fitted mouthguard for the best protection.
Adult orthodontics enables adults to straighten their 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 provides safe, effective adult orthodontics treatments so adults can get the best smile possible at a price they can afford.

FAQs about Kids Orthodontics:
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 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 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. We recommend seeing one of our orthodontists as soon as you suspect your child may have alignment issues, no matter what their age.
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 their mouth
The orthodontic professionals at The Super Dentists 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 our orthodontists will 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 has an array of teeth straightening methods that weren’t around when you were a kid. From their exclusive AADvance Braces™ to Clear Aligners 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 harder to repair as a child ages.
Braces can correct many oral health issues so your child will enjoy a healthy smile for a lifetime.
What Should I Do If My Child Needs Braces?
Simply meet with our orthodontist for an evaluation, and your child will be able to get the support they need and find out how braces can help improve their smile. If your child does need braces, The Super Dentists will let you know the next steps.
Does The Super Dentists provide both dentist and orthodontist services?
