Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time to begin orthodontic treatment. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems, or no later than age 7. By starting orthodontic care and treatment early, we can recognize potential concerns and correct them before they become critical problems. Beginning treatment with our Houston, TX orthodontists at this time ensures the greatest result. In addition, it can help you save time and money.
During your child’s initial evaluation, one of our Houston, TX orthodontists will examine their teeth and look for any possible problems. These possible problems include crowding, overbite, open bite, or gummy smiles. It is possible that your child may not need immediate treatment – or any at all – and we will never recommend early intervention treatment to a child who doesn’t truly need it. For some children, however, early detection can help us effectively address the problems. In addition, we can reduce the risk of future dental problems for your child.
To find out if your child is a candidate for early orthodontic treatment, call us at 281.587.4900 today. To request your child’s complimentary Dr. McLendon Smile Analysis online, click here. We look forward to giving your child the confidence of a happy, healthy smile!
