Orthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages. In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications.
At TeethBuddies Pediatric Dentistry, when necessary, we provide Phase One Orthodontics. The purpose of phase one treatment is that early intervention, while a child is still growing, can give us a greater ability to improve the growth and development of the teeth and jaws. This may prevent the development of facial asymmetry and reduce the need for tooth extractions.
If it’s time for your child’s first orthodontic consultation, call us today at 408 636 2937 to schedule an appointment.
