Early Treatment

earlyThe American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receives an orthodontic screening by the age of 7. We offer this complementary screening free of charge.

Even though a child's permanent teeth have not finished erupting at the age of 7, we are able to evaluate the:

  • the relationship of the upper and lower teeth
  • potential for crowding
  • possibility of open bite
  • narrow jaw and cross bite
  • abnormal eruption
  • jaw posturing to bring the teeth in contact

This can reduce the overall treatment time in braces.
