Early Orthodontic Care

A Foundation for Straight, Healthy Teeth

Did you know orthodontic treatment may be recommended for patients as young as seven? Research and experience show that by beginning orthodontic treatment as soon as our patients’ adult teeth have erupted, we can provide the same level of correction with less resistance and discomfort. This can be especially important for young patients who have severe alignment concerns that may require advanced or surgical care if left untreated in the early stages.
