Early Treatment

To have a healthy smile, that lasts a lifetime, your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that your child get a check-up with an orthodontist at the first recognition of an orthodontic issue, but no later than age 7. A check-up early in your child’s life gives the orthodontist the opportunity to recommend appropriate treatment at the right time for your child.

Early Recognition.

Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth even while some baby teeth are still present.

Assured Results.

Early treatment may give your orthodontist the ability to: (1) guide jaw growth, (2) correct harmful oral habits, and (3) guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position.

A brighter future.

In some cases, the orthodontist may be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
