Early orthodontic treatment is among the most important treatments we provide at Neibaur Family Orthodontics. When we begin orthodontic treatment at an early age, our orthodontist can minimize if not prevent many future orthodontic and health issues. Some of the early orthodontic services offered at our office include:
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening by the time they are 7 years old. At this time, children are developed enough that any orthodontic issues are apparent, but young enough that these problems can be corrected through gentler, less-invasive means. Orthodontic treatment at this stage of life can make later treatment with braces easier, and in some cases, it can prevent the need for braces entirely.
Benefits of early orthodontic treatment include:
- Prevents more invasive, expensive, and time-consuming treatments later on
- Gives children and teens increased self-confidence, as they can enjoy a healthier, more beautiful smile from a younger age
- Corrects bad bites before they can cause damage to the teeth, gums, or other structures
- Easier and more comfortable treatment, as they jaw is still growing and can be more easily guided
