Non-extraction orthodontics is a popular choice for patients who wish to straighten teeth without having to remove any natural permanent teeth. During non-extraction orthodontic treatment, your custom orthodontic treatments will correct tooth crowding by guiding the growth and development of the jaws to an appropriate size to accommodate all of the permanent teeth. This may include the use of functional appliances (much like retainers) to non-surgically achieve a beautiful broad smile. Non-extraction orthodontics also may allow patients to spend less time in braces. All these things can be done with minimal or no discomfort and without surgery.
Eruption Guidance Orthodontics
Eruption Guidance is an orthodontic technique that guides the permanent teeth into position as they are erupting. This technique is easy, kind, and comfortable as compared to traditional braces. These appliances are soft, comfortable, and worn for one hour per day, plus overnight.
Children as young as 3 years old can benefit from early treatment. Feel free to bring your child in for an evaluation of their teeth and bite. We will be able to determine if your child will benefit from our early or interceptive orthodontic program. We will be happy to discuss treatment options with you such as “myofunctional orthodontics.”

Clear Aligners is the clearest, most comfortable, and most hygienic orthodontic treatment available to patients.
In cases of maxillary constriction and nasal airway obstruction, RME (Rapid Maxillary Expansion) has proved to be efficient for the improvement of nasal respiration in children via a widening effect on the nasopharyngeal cavity. A simple evaluation from Dr. King can determine if this treatment would benefit your child.
