Children Orthodontics - Teen Orthodontics
The American Association of Orthodontists says the right time for an orthodontic checkup is no later than age 7. Your child’s treatment plan will depend on his or her unique dental needs. At Orthodontic Arts in Oklahoma City, we put both children orthodontics and teen orthodontics as a top priority in our practice. We custom taylor dental treatment plans to match your child’s dental development.
In some dental cases, early treatment for your child may be beneficial to prevent problems that could be more difficult to correct at a later age. However, in many cases, we may recommend monitoring your child’s growth and development and beginning treatment in the early teen years or at the most appropriate time based on their individual development.
Our goal is to deliver the best, customized care for your family at the most opportune time. By following this commitment, we can oftentimes decrease the overall cost and time of treatment.
Children Orthodontics – Teen Orthodontics Preventative Care
Even if your child’s teeth appear to be straight, orthodontic issues that only your orthodontist can detect, may exist and negatively impact your child’s oral health. Early detection may prevent those problems from becoming more serious and requiring more extensive treatment in the future. We focus on children orthodontics to help provide shorter treatments and provide good oral health for permanent teeth. A large percentage of our patients come in for teen orthodontic care. We can correct dental issues as teens continue to transition to permanent teeth.
Early evaluation and treatment can help:
- Guide jaw growth and permanent teeth positioning
- Shorten orthodontic treatment time in the future
- Correct harmful oral habits
- Lower the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- Reduce the need for future permanent tooth extractions and dental work
