Early Orthodontic Treatment
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that a child receives their first orthodontic check-up no later than the age of 7.
Braces may not always be necessary later in life, but monitoring your child’s tooth-jaw relationship at an early age is essential to their oral health.
What are the benefits of early orthodontic treatment?
Why does your child need an orthodontic evaluation by age 7?
The presence of erupting front teeth can indicate possible overbite, open bite, or crowding. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant and timely screening can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment, increasing the chance for an incredible smile.
Braces for Kids
What will treatment look like for your child?
From these records and exams, a diagnosis and treatment plan is formulated for treatment. Dr. Scott utilizes SureSmile® technology to design your child’s treatment plan and customize their wires and brackets.
What types of braces are available for children?
Ceramic braces, Invisalign®, and SureSmile® clear aligners are also available for some children and teenagers.
