early treatment

the american association of orthodontists recommends 
seeing children at age 7

proper dental alignment leads to a healthy and lasting bite and smile

we can prevent or intercept early concerns

this may shorten full orthodontic treatment 


early orthodontic treatment can be proactive instead of reactive

treatment typically lasts around 12 months

you may hear our doctors use the terms phase I, interceptive or preventative treatment 

not every growing child needs early treatment


the front or back teeth may not align properly

oral habits may prevent proper growth and development of the jaws

improper tooth position may increase the risk of trauma 

properly identifying early concerns is critical in improving dental and oral health 


Limited braces can help with the alignment and position of the teeth

expanders can help correct how the teeth fit 

appliances can maintain space in the mouth 

we will identify what treatment can benefit your child!
