• Orthodontics for Children
    We generally recommend having your child seen by an orthodontist by the age of 7 to advise if treatment is needed. Common problems like overbites, crossbites, underbites, and crowding have generally been established by this time and the earlier the treatment, the better!

Orthodontic Services

We are so lucky to have Dr. Kessler and his team visit Children’s Dental Center of Monmouth each week. We provide a variety of pediatric orthodontic services, so your child can get the smile they deserve.

  • Types of Braces

    Traditional Metal Braces
    These are the most common type, using high-grade stainless steel. Kids love adding colored elastics!
    Ceramic Braces
    These are made of clean materials, so they are less visible than metal braces. They tend to be used more on upper front teeth.
    Invisalign
    Invisalign uses invisible, removable aligners to straighten teeth and are much more comfortable that traditional braces!
    Lingual Braces
    This type of braces are hidden behind the teeth, and are completely customized to the shape of your teeth.
