Orthodontist San Diego

Brace yourself, we also do child and adult orthodontics

Here at Eastlake Pediatric Dentistry, we’ve also set up our offices to make nervous kids comfortable during every visit — especially the first one.

Our unique, kid­friendly waiting rooms are filled with TV and video games to help children relax before going inside. Spending a few extra minutes hanging out in a fun waiting room can be a perfect way to ensure a stress­free introduction. We’d love to help give your child a great first impression of visiting the dentist.

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Kids

Clear & Metal Braces: Braces are traditionally used to align teeth and correct a person’s bite. Eastlake Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics offers both clear ceramic braces and metal braces.

Invisalign Teen: The virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of custom made, clear removable aligners. Your child simply wears the aligners over their teeth and changes them out for a new set every two weeks.

Oral Appliances: Oral appliances help provide protection against sports-related tooth damage and concussions. They can also help treat the causes and effects of teeth grinding and sleep apnea.

Orthodontics For Adults Too

Why should kids have all the fun? It’s never too late to enjoy the benefits of orthodontics. Our practice offers adults a range of quick and discrete treatments designed to correct and enhance your smile.

Invisalign Lite: Invisalign Lite is specifically designed for adults who have previously had orthodontic treatment. Through a series of clear and removable custom-made aligners, your teeth will typically be straightened in 6 to 9 months.

Clear Braces: Clear ceramic braces are another great option to spruce up your smile. Whether you have previously had orthodontic treatment or not, clear braces will straighten your teeth and correct your bite. A touch-up treatment typically lasts 6 to 9 months.

Teeth Whitening: Take-home teeth whitening kits are an easy and safe way to brighten your smile and make you look and feel younger. Each kit includes four treatments.

Oral Appliances: Oral appliances help provide protection against sports-related tooth damage and concussions. They can also help treat the causes and effects of teeth grinding and sleep apnea.

Financing for Orthodontics

Flexible Payments: After your free consultation, we will prepare a cost estimate for the recommended treatment, estimate your insurance benefit, and help arrange any financing you may need. We accept all major credit cards, health savings account (HSA) cards, and personal checks.

Financing Options: Choose from several financing options that offer economical monthly payments, even for those with credit challenges. 0% interest and low interest programs are available for those who qualify.

Insurance Plans Accepted: Eastlake Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics accepts all major PPO insurance plans. We will work with you to estimate your dental benefits, submit insurance claims electronically on your behalf, and assist you in obtaining reimbursement from your employer-sponsored flexible spending program, if applicable.

Orthodontic Evaluation for Children

The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven.

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Early detection of potential orthodontic issues gives your child a better chance for natural and normal tooth development. By working with the natural growth of your child’s teeth instead of against it, Dr. Macaoay can prevent problems from becoming worse and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles.
