Early Treatment

Some children are excellent candidates for orthodontic treatment, even though they may still have some “baby teeth.”

It is beneficial for you to have your child evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven to assess any problems that may be developing.

Here are some of the benefits of early treatment:

  1. 1. Enhancing self-esteem by improving the child’s appearance with proper jaw and tooth alignment
  2. 2. Create a more stable long-term result, especially with severe bite problems
  3. 3. Shortening or improving the results of the second phase of treatment
  4. 4. Allowing for treatment at an age when some children are more cooperative
  5. 5. Helping prevent fractures to teeth that “stick out”
  6. 6. Attempting to minimize future jaw surgery
  7. 7. Lessen the chance of permanent tooth removal
