Early Treatment

3 children Smiling

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receives his or her first orthodontic screening by age 7. While that may sound young, by checking the patterns of dental growth early on, we are able to recognize potential problems and correct them before they become more serious. This will save you and your child time and money by preventing future problems before they begin.

During your child's initial evaluation, we will first determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed, such as potential crowding, open bite, overbite or gummy smiles. Many children need no treatment at all at this stage. If early treatment (often called "Phase I" or "Interceptive" treatment) is recommended, Dr. Eves will review the treatment options, show you examples and answer any questions you may have.
