Your child’s smile is theirs forever, and the dental team at Dentistry For Kids wants to ensure that your child achieves a straight, healthy, and beautiful smile that he or she can enjoy for a lifetime!
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening at age 7. Not all children will require early orthodontic treatment, however early treatment can be extremely beneficial for certain types of bites. When indicated, early treatment allows the orthodontist to intercept a problem in the beginning stages to correct or lessen the severity.
Early orthodontic treatment can help to:
- Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
- Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
- Create facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth
- Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
- Reduce the risk of dental trauma to protruded teeth
At Dentistry for Kids, we will determine whether early treatment is needed and when orthodontic treatment should begin. We will create a personalized treatment plan for your child to receive optimal results.
