The childhood and teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment although many adults can benefit from orthodontics as well. At Premier Dental Solutions, our dentist has 20 years of experience in helping people achieve the proper alignment for their teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by age seven, and we encourage you to bring your child to our office by this age to evaluate their need for orthodontic treatment. When we are able to start treatment early, we can often detect and correct potential problems before they become more serious. This can help save time as well as money.
Early orthodontic treatment is advantageous because a young child’s teeth have not finished erupting; this allows us to guide their eruption and address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:
- Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
- Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
- Create facial symmetry by guiding jaw growth
- Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
- Reduce the overall treatment time
When you bring your child to our practice, our dentist will be able to determine whether treatment is needed and when it should begin. If you are considering orthodontics for yourself, there may be certain issues we will need to address, and Dr. Doralio S. Millan will be happy to talk with you further during your visit. During your initial visit with our dentist, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.
