Be Proactive About Straight Teeth
Your child should have an orthodontic examination around their 7th birthday. That’s the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists. Children usually have a mix of primary and permanent teeth at this age. Our orthodontists can learn a lot at this time about how your child’s teeth will develop.
Another thing to remember is that we can also take actions at that stage that could make other treatments easier when your child is older. Dentofacial orthopedics allows us to guide the development of the jaw and facial bones. This can help teeth erupt correctly, so any alignment issues are less severe.
Let’s Create Great Smiles Together
For good or bad, smiles do affect us in more ways than you may think. Straight teeth are easier to keep healthy because you can brush and floss them more effectively. A nice smile also can affect your self-confidence and how you are perceived by others.
Our team at Orthodontic Alliances wants everyone in your family to enjoy the advantages of straight teeth. When you make your first orthodontic appointment in St. John, IN, we can help you get moving in the right direction. Call 219-440-6512 to visit us.
