Quality Orthodontics For Kids
Just like prevention makes treatment easier or unneeded, early assessment and treatment for straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite can save you hassle, time and money in corrections down the road.
In addition to the peace of mind that an early assessment offers, our pediatric orthodontics are specifically designed in order to prevent small problems from developing into large ones, as we maintain control of the mouth as the permanent teeth start to come in. In this way, we can talk about the structure of the teeth and jaw, discussing with you how the shape may interfere with quality oral health down the line, or letting you rest easy knowing that everything looks like it is in good shape for a healthy smile.
Because your child’s facial structure has developed enough to support adult teeth by the time they reach age 7, we are able to understand how those teeth will develop, and so early orthodontics may be able to:
- Identify which habits need correction
- Correct any issues with bite
- Guide jaw growth in order to make sure new teeth come in properly
- Reduce protruding teeth
- Improves appearance
- Reduce future dental corrections
- And more
In order to provide a complete dental care for your child, our pediatric orthodontists often take orthodontic treatment in two steps: one now, with benefits listed above, and one as the child ages. The second step usually occurs when all adult teeth have come in, as a normal orthodontic treatment which will move permanent teeth into final positions, as well as correct any remaining jaw issues.
