The earlier we catch problems with your child’s bite, the simpler they are to fix. The results are often better than if we wait and require less work. We may not need to keep braces on your child for as long when they are younger, which means less expense for you.
Early intervention can be beneficial for many reasons. We will watch how your child’s mouth and teeth grow and develop, so if we see something that needs to be done we can do it right away.
There are many reasons to start treatment early. Early treatment allows us to do the following:
- Make room for the permanent teeth when there is overcrowding
- Ensure facial symmetry
- Reduce trauma when the front teeth are protruding
- Prevent unnecessary extractions and reduce the time patients must spend wearing braces.
