By the time your kids are in first or second grade, oral problems may be just beginning to develop. By taking your children in to the orthodontist early on, many orthodontic issues can be addressed before they have the chance to get worse. At Great Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, your Solana orthodontic office provides the full scope of orthodontic and pediatric dentistry services. Whether your teen is ready for braces, or your little ones are ready for their first visit, the experienced team at Great Smiles always welcome a new smile, and invite you and your family members to come and receive the highest quality oral care.
Much like the caterpillar blossoms into a beautiful, healthy butterfly under the right conditions, your children’s oral development has the utmost potential under the close watch of your orthodontist. Seven years of age may seem early, but according to the latest research published by the American Association of Orthodontists, it’s the prime age to evaluate your children’s mouth for potential orthodontic issues. Now, in the vast majority of cases, braces aren’t necessary this early on. However, intervention can be planned, to make use of your children’s oral growth and development to their best advantage.
There are a wide range of issues which can lead to a misaligned bite, crooked teeth, or the increased risk for necessary extraction. With improperly aligned teeth, maintaining oral hygiene becomes more difficult, increasing your children’s risk for the development of dental decay, and eventually gum disease as they get older. By taking your children into your Solana orthodontic office early on, your orthodontist can help ensure that your children’s mouths remain healthy and easy to clean.
With the help of your Solana orthodontic office, your children’s smiles can develop in full bloom. If your kids are seven years of age or older, give a call to the experienced orthodontists at Great Smiles Pediatric Dentistry to schedule their initial orthodontic evaluation today.
