At a young age, your child is developing at a rapid rate. The mouth, especially, is continuing to grow, and brand-new permanent teeth are replacing those baby teeth.
Colorado Orthodontics provides families in the Denver Metro area with the best early orthodontic care, by helping teach children the importance of taking care of their teeth.
During adolescence, there may be early signs that orthodontic treatment will be necessary for your son or daughter. Our team of highly trained orthodontists is dedicated to finding and correcting these problems, and helping guide your youngster into his or her perfect smile.
The Appropriate Age to Begin Early Treatment
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children first see an orthodontist when they turn seven years old. At this age your little one’s first adult back molars have come in and our team at Colorado Orthodontics can get a better idea of what future treatment might be necessary.
If possible, we will try to correct any minor problems that are arising before they become major ones, to save you time and money down the road. Setting an appointment at an early age allows for a faster, smoother route to a beautiful smile.
The Benefits of Early and Interceptive Treatments
Beginning your child’s orthodontic treatment at Colorado Orthodontics gives her or him an orthodontic home to guide the teeth and jaw through adolescence. Beginning these treatments will also work to prevent larger issues that are common among adults.
Below are some of the common ways interceptive treatment can help:
- Creates room for potential crowding teeth
- Influences jaw growth for facial symmetry
- Reduces the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- Preserves space for growing teeth
- Reduces the potential for tooth removal
- Reduces braces treatment time
- Regulates width of dental arches
- Adjusts thumb-sucking consequences
- Corrects possible speech problems
