WHY START EARLY?
Early Orthodontic Treatment
Little Children = Little Problems
Big Children = Bigger Problems
You have probably heard this common saying. Well, in Orthodontics, this phrase makes a lot of sense. Early orthodontics refers to the treatment of the orthodontic problem at an early age to AVOID, PREVENT or MINIMIZE the need for extensive orthodontic treatment or extractions when your child is teenager.
As we all know the teeth are contained in the jaws. Many orthodontic problems can be treated early in life using orthodontic appliances that can guide the jaws into the proper place so the permanent teeth come in the right spot. With Orthodontic appliances we can create space and also correct bite problems such as Open bite, Crossbites, Narrow arches and even help with airway problems.
If you think your child is developing an abnormal bite. Bring him/her for an orthodontic evaluation.
How early can I bring my child? As early as 6 years old.
