Early Treatment

Early interceptive orthodontic treatment can help avoid poor growth patterns and allow for proper eruption of adult teeth

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receives his or her first orthodontic screening by age 7. By starting treatment early, we are able to recognize potential problems and correct them before they become more serious. This will save you and your child time and money by preventing future problems before they begin.

Early interceptive orthodontic treatment has proven to be beneficial for the overall desired result. Because a young child's permanent teeth have not finished erupting, we are able to thoroughly evaluate and address any impending problems at the earliest stage.

During your child's initial evaluation, we will first determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed, such as potential crowding, open bite, overbite, cross bite or impacted teeth. The Phase I treatment plan can include preventive, interceptive or modifying treatment. Orthodontic appliances may be placed to prevent a problem from occurring, correct a current problem or help direct jaw growth. Multiple problems with tooth alignment, gums, jaws and facial problems can be corrected with Phase I treatment.

To find out if your child is a candidate for early interceptive treatment, schedule a consultation.
