Benefits of Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that ALL children have a dental screening no later than age seven. Early orthodontic screening can lead to easier, more effective treatment for dental patients.

Early treatment often presents the opportunity to:

  • Influence jaw growth in a positive manner
  • Harmonize width of the dental arches
  • Improve eruption patterns
  • Lower risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors
  • Correct harmful oral habits
  • Improve aesthetics and self-esteem
  • Simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
  • Reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth
  • Improve some speech problems
  • Preserve or gain space for erupting permanent teeth
