    • Dentists who understand early treatment orthodontics can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.

    • While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only a dentist can detect.

    • The check-up may reveal that your child’s bite is fine.

    Or, the dentist (or orthodontist) may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring the child’s growth and development, and then if indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for the child. In other cases, there might be a problem that can benefit from early treatment.

    • Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

    • In some cases, the orthodontist or dentist will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

    • Early treatment allows the opportunity to:

    • guide jaw growth
    • lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
    • correct harmful oral habits
    • improve appearance
    • guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position • improve the way lips meet
    • Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you’ll be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.

    Because patients differ in both physiological development and treatment needs, the orthodontist’s goal is to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment at the most appropriate time.
