Pediatric Partial in Reseda
In the case that your child is missing his/her upper front teeth prematurely due to trauma or decay, we are excited to offer the option of a pediatric partial (AKA the Groper’s appliance). Typically the permanent (adult) front teeth do not come in until around the age of 6-7. As a result, the option of the pediatric partial is given to help restore a child’s smile and confidence until the permanent teeth are ready to come in.
Pediatric partials are designed mainly for cosmetic purposes. However, they also aid in establishing proper speech, serve as a space maintainer by preventing other teeth from drifting, and help prevent improper and unwanted oral habits from developing.
If you think your child may need a pediatric partial, call Kids Dental Crew at 747-200-4877 for a consultation!
