Early orthodontic treatment for children

The health and appearance of your child’s smile are important not only for their self-confidence but also for their overall oral and physical well-being. Early orthodontic treatment, often starting as young as age 7, can address a variety of issues and set the stage for a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.

The Advantages of Early Orthodontic Treatment

By monitoring a child’s dental development from a young age, Dr. Beglin and his team can identify and address issues before they become more severe. This can include:

  • Guiding Jaw Growth. Early treatment can help ensure that the upper and lower jaws grow and develop in harmony, preventing problems like overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
  • Creating Space for Erupting Teeth. If a child’s mouth is too small to accommodate all of their permanent teeth, an orthodontist can use appliances to create space and guide the teeth into their proper positions as they emerge.
  • Correcting Bite Alignment. Addressing issues like overbites, underbites, and open bites early can prevent more serious problems from developing and make future treatment more straightforward.
  • Improving Appearance and Self-Esteem. By addressing orthodontic problems early, children can avoid the potential for teasing or bullying, and develop a healthy, positive self-image.
  • Promoting Healthy Oral Development. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

Another significant advantage of early orthodontic treatment is the potential to reduce the duration and complexity of future treatment. By addressing problems early, an orthodontist can often achieve the desired results with less invasive and time-consuming procedures. This can translate to a shorter overall treatment time and potentially lower costs for the family.

What to Expect During Your Child’s Treatment

When you bring your child in for their first orthodontic consult at Beglin Orthodontics, the process will typically involve an initial exam of your child’s teeth, jaws, and facial structure, taking x-rays and impressions as needed. Our caring and professional team will then discuss with you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.

Everything was really nice over there. They told me I was probably gonna have two years in my braces. I finished in about a year and a half and everything looks great!!!
