WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT A “TYPICAL” ORTHODONTIC PATIENT you may automatically think of a teenager! But the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your children get an early evaluation checkup with an orthodontist long before entering middle school.
Usually, when a child is about seven years old, enough permanent teeth and soft tissue have developed for us to determine how your child’s teeth will eventually grow and fit together—but the mouth’s structure is still flexible enough for us to help guide that growth.
During our initial visit, we’ll evaluate…
In some cases, tackling issues early can mean less invasive treatments later. Just as an example, sometimes during the treatment of teens and adults extractions may be necessary… But early on, that same issue may have been resolved with a palatial expander. This early care may help preserve the natural structure of your child’s mouth and allow us to more easily achieve the very best, healthiest orthodontic results.
We study smiles all day! We know how to recognize malocclusion in all its forms and we can plan treatment accordingly. We’re experienced in seeing things that other professionals may not see.
When you invest in your child’s smile, you invest in their future. A smile opens up opportunities in their personal life, in their career prospects, and in their personal confidence.
Remember the famous viral video, “David After Dentist?” It has been over five years since that video went viral! If you haven’t seen it for a while, it may be worth watching again. By the way, David is seven years old in the video… Another reminder for you to set up an appointment with us to visit with your seven-year-old son, daughter, or sibling!
Thanks for the trust you place in us. We appreciate having you as our valued patient!
