Pediatric dentistry – what we offer

Pediatric dentistry

At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our practice. We believe in creating a strong foundation of oral health for your child, which includes visits with us and your family dentist. All of our pediatric specialists are in network with Delta Dental and do all they can to ensure your child’s teeth have the best start possible.

Your child’s first visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends children visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child's newly-erupted teeth (erupting at six to 12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.

Orthodontic treatment for children

At Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we take particular interest in the oral health of children and offer a range of treatments to achieve the very best results we can, whatever orthodontic problem they present with.

Many children present with the misalignment of jaws, which we can treat with two-phase treatment if the problem is identified early enough. Following two-phase treatment we can fit braces to help your child or teenager achieve a wonderfully straight smile that will boost their self-confidence.

Some of the orthodontic treatments we offer include:
