The early childhood years are a great time to begin orthodontic treatment. It is during this time when a child’s teeth develop that orthodontic treatment is essential for guiding their teeth to align properly. Early on, we can better detect the situation of your child’s teeth and provide them the treatment they need to prevent serious oral health issues. This can help you in saving time and money on restorative treatments later on.

With braces, we can help your child receive proper orthodontic treatment. If a child receives braces early on, this is actually beneficial because at a younger age, a child’s teeth are still developing and are therefore easier to guide into the correct alignment. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early treatment can help: 

  • Provide more room for crowded, erupting teeth 
  • Correct crooked or unevenly gapped teeth
  • Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted 
  • Correct problems with bite such as crossbites or overbites
    • When you bring your child in for a visit, our dentists will be able to determine whether braces are the best option for your child. If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. For more information, we invite you to call or visit us today!
