How will my child benefit from early orthodontic care?

  • Oral problems caught earlier are often easier and more affordable to resolve.
  • Certain tooth and jaw alignment issues may be avoided with early intervention.
  • There is a decreased risk for injury to front teeth when protrusions are corrected quickly.
  • Bad oral habits (thumb sucking, etc.) caught early can be nipped in the bud.
  • There is a measurable correlation in children and teens between improved facial appearance and improved self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Early Phase I treatment can also shorten Phase II treatment.
