There are certain tooth eruption and skeletal growth disharmonies that are best corrected with early orthodontic treatment. This may be as early as seven or eight years old. If some of these problems are treated at an early age it allows the orthodontist to utilize the child’s natural growth and development to occur with orthodontic guidance. You should feel secure in the knowledge that our orthodontists and staff are very experienced in treating young children.
Early treatment may involve just an orthodontic appliance or may use appliances in combination with some limited braces. Our orthodontists will often recommend this early treatment to lessen the complexity of future comprehensive orthodontic care.
If you have any concern or questions regarding potential orthodontic needs, we encourage you to Request an appointment for an orthodontic evaluation for your child.
