Act Early to Ensure Your Family Has Healthy Smiles

You should schedule an orthodontic exam around your child’s 7th birthday, according to the American Association of Orthodontists. By that age, most children have a mix of permanent and primary teeth. Their faces and jaws are still growing. This can provide our doctors with a great deal of information.

In most cases, we can let you and your child know if orthodontic care will be likely as they get older. With our variety of options, we are confident we can help your child create a healthy, attractive smile with well-aligned teeth.

If our doctors notice something concerning with your child’s bone structure, dentofacial orthopedics can correct it by:

  • Guiding how your child’s facial bones develop
  • Creating room for teeth to erupt correctly
  • Making orthodontic care easier when they are older

Your teeth affect your life in many ways. Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, which makes it easier to maintain a healthy smile for life. By coming to Orthodontic Alliances, you can help your loved ones get a great start on lifelong healthy smiles.
