Also known as interceptive orthodontics, treating orthodontic problems as early as 6 to 7 years old is beneficial for the child’s developing dental health. Due to the ongoing development of both the teeth and the jaw, it is easier to address certain dental conditions. Guerrino Dentistry can perform a full oral exam to check for cavities and other problems. There might be a need to facilitate dental X-rays in order to ensure an accurate orthodontic evaluation. Once the dental condition is established, a treatment plan will be made. There will also be an assessment for the need to use functional appliances to fix the dental problems.
During one's childhood, it is the most advantageous time to determine the need for orthodontic treatment. This can help approximate the future dental condition of a child. By ensuring timely intervention, there will be a greater chance to achieve the best results. Repairing adult teeth may be expensive. Unnecessary expenses for complicated dental procedures can be avoided when one's dental problems are addressed early on.
