Children’s Orthodontics

It’s a good idea to get initial assessments by an orthodontist at age 7.  You might be wondering, “why start so early”?  Well, this is about the time when baby teeth are being replaced by adult teeth – and this is where problems first begin to develop.  As you can imagine, the sooner you can begin to reverse and deal with the problem, the easier it is to fix, and the better the results.  At this age, the jaw is still growing and if teeth can be redirected to the right positions during this time, results will be better and easier than if you wait until after the teeth have settled into wrong positions.

Give us a call and let us schedule an “Early” consultation and we can get the ball rolling with your child to determine if and when treatment is necessary.  Contact today for your consultation.
