I don't do reviews very often. However, this one for Dr. Mila Davis is easy and well-earned. She has taken care of my twin boys for 14 years. She and her staff are always professional and courteous. Now, it's time for my boys to graduate from Pediatric dentistry to the adult world. Thank you for all you have done. Your top-notch!

Dr. Davis had been seeing my now 11, 9 and 7-year-old since they were 3, 1, and a newborn. I would not recommend anyone other than Dr. Davis!

Dr Davis has been my children’s Dentist since they were 2 years old. I now have a 17 year old that is going to a General Dentist. The compliments he has been getting from his new dentist/hygienist is great to hear as a parent. Example: Rahim had serious work/trauma in his early childhood, however the work performed by Dr. Davis was done so well that one of the compliments were “you cannot tell that there were ever trauma to his mouth/teeth”. We also received compliments on his sealants. I will recommend Dr. Davis any day as a pediatric Dentist because of her people skills and work.

frisco interceptive orthodontics

Did you know that we can begin addressing orthodontic concerns for kids as young as age seven? At this stage, early interceptive orthodontics could allow us to guide the growth of the smile and prevent worsening alignment concerns. At your Frisco, TX, children’s dental practice, we can use space maintainers, retainers, and more to help improve little smiles!

When to See Our Team

If you begin to notice issues with the alignment of your child’s teeth, or if primary teeth have not been falling out as they should, then you should consider an appointment with our team. We can see children as young as age seven. At this stage, there is a mix of permanent and primary teeth in their smile, and can better gauge the risk of poor alignment in the future and plan treatment to mitigate it. To begin, we will employ advanced digital imaging technologies to take pictures of the smile, including the roots and jawbone structures, so we can assess the threat of misalignment and decide the best course of treatment for your child.

Our Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment Options

If primary teeth have been lost too soon, this could cause misalignment that alters how permanent teeth erupt, since the teeth on either side may no longer be able to guide them into proper position. But with a space maintainer, we attach a custom appliance that keeps the space open and allows the permanent teeth to erupt as they should. We could also create a custom retainer, which can be fixed in place or removable, to help guide the growth of the smile to limit the severity of misalignment. We could also provide a palate extender to guide smile development, and use limited braces to help shift the teeth into proper positions. In some cases, a tooth may need to be extracted to make room for orthodontic treatment, or to take out a primary tooth that hasn’t fallen out as it should.

Braces and Aligners

The interceptive stage is useful when the smile is still growing and the permanent teeth are still erupting, as we can guide the development of the smile to limit the severity of poor alignment. Once your child reaches the teen years, and all of the teeth have erupted and their surfaces properly calcified, we can complete treatment with braces or aligners to shift them to their final and proper position. If you have any questions about how we correct poor alignment, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help your little one smile with confidence!
