Children & 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.
In some cases, early treatment 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 at the most appropriate time.
Our goal is to deliver the best, individualized care for your family at the most opportune time. By following this commitment, we can oftentimes decrease the overall cost and time of treatment.
Child and Teen Preventative Care
Even if your child’s teeth appear to be straight, there could be problems only our orthodontists can detect. Early detection may prevent those problems from becoming more serious and requiring more extensive treatment in the future.
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
