Orthodontic Care

The AAO recommends that children see an orthodontist as early as age seven. At this point the orthodontist will evaluate whether your child will need orthodontic treatment.

Why is early orthodontic care important?

Some orthodontic conditions are simply easier to correct if they’re corrected early. And knowing that your child might need corrective dental work, or not need corrective dental work simply offers peace of mind. Interceptive orthodontic treatment is all about preventing more severe problems later on. It provides the opportunity for an orthodontist to have control over where the permanent teeth come in by addressing the structure of the jaw and teeth while the primary teeth are still in the mouth. By age seven, your child’s mouth has grown enough and has enough sound structure to know how it will develop as the permanent teeth start to emerge. 

The benefits of early intervention by a Dental Associates orthodontist include:

  • A better prognosis for how the permanent teeth will develop
  • The ability to correct any habits that may be the cause of development problems, such as thumb sucking or tongue pushing
  • Correcting bite problems like an open bite, cross bite or deep bite
  • The ability to guide the growth of the jaw to accommodate emerging teeth
  • Lowering the risk of damage to any protruding teeth
  • The ability to improve your child’s appearance
  • Creating a more pleasing and functional arrangement of teeth, lips and face
  • Alleviating future, and possibly more invasive, dental correction
  • Increasing self-esteem and confidence in your child
