Our dental surgeons passionately believe in the importance of Early Treatment and know that the adolescent growth spurt is the best time to treat orthodontic cases. By treating a child’s orthodontic issues while their facial bones are still developing, the dental surgeon is able to utilize this growth, which in turn leads to a more stable result and better aesthetic appearance.
At your child’s first orthodontic appointment, the doctor will evaluate whether or not your child will need Early Treatment. Our friendly doctors will check the teeth of your child carefully and gently. The appointment will leave them feeling confident and at ease within the orthodontic environment. After the initial assessment, the length and specificity of treatment can vary greatly, but the knowledge that your child is getting the expert help they need is invaluable.
