Solve your children's dental problems early at Apple Dental Care! Our family dentists offer early orthodontic intervention. Taking proper care of your children's teeth early can minimize the need for more invasive dental treatment in the future.
Early Orthodontic Treatment
The earlier your child starts going to the dentist, the better. In fact, it is recommended that a child is assessed by a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of their first tooth or by age one.
Early visits allows your dentist to monitor the health and development of their oral structures as they grow. Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected early rather than waiting until jaw growth has slowed.
Early orthodontic treatment is designed to minimize or eliminate the need for more invasive treatment or serious corrections later in life.
As your child is still growing and developing, their skeletal structure is still malleable making it possible to modify their jaw development and promote proper growth, which may help avoid the need for more invasive treatment or even surgery later in your child's development.
