Visit our office and see how early treatment can help to minimize or even avoid future treatment with braces with our exciting new technology aimed at young children 3 to 8 years of age. Avoid extractions and complicated orthodontic treatment with early intervention.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a child to be seen no later than age 7 or 8 to screen for developing tooth or jaw/growth problems. By identifying these subtle signs and intervening early, jaws can be developed and guided to their optimal growth potential. This results in less time in active treatment, a decreased possibility of extractions or jaw surgery, and better overall treatment results.
We at Quantum Orthodontics believe so strongly in the benefits of early treatment that we recommend a child to be seen by age 4 or 5. The latest research shows that a child’s face and jaw are 80% developed by age 8. Optimum growth can only be achieved by starting very early. Early Phase I is very easy and involves a soft appliance worn nightly and for one hour during the day.
Early orthodontic treatment can help the following:
- guide jaw growth
- lower the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- correct oral habits
- improve appearance
- correct bite problems that could lead to facial asymmetry or a compromised airway
- guide permanent teeth into more favourable positions
- possibly reduce the need for further treatment
