Does Your Child Need Early Orthodontic Treatment in Coral Springs?
If you wore braces, do you remember how old you were when you got them? While many people get braces as preteens, teens, and even as adults, there are significant benefits to early orthodontic treatment. Treating tooth and bite problems early can help your child get a better-looking smile and more functional teeth sooner rather that later in Coral Springs.
As soon as you notice anything that looks like it can be a problem for your child’s jaw and dental development, you should schedule an evaluation with an orthodontist, according to the American Association of Orthodontics. By having your child’s teeth and bite evaluated once they have some of their permanent teeth – namely their first permanent molars and incisors – your orthodontist can determine the type of orthodontic treatment your son or daughter will eventually need.
Early orthodontic treatment at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics occurs in 2 phases. During the first phase:
- Dental models are created
- X-rays are taken
- Photos are taken
Before your child has all of their permanent teeth. By creating this thorough dental record, Dr. Yazji and her team are able to create the best conditions for proper jaw development, bite correction, and other orthodontic treatment. During the second phase of early orthodontic treatment, after your child has all of their permanent teeth:
- A customized treatment plan is developed
- Full braces are placed on your child’s teeth
After about two years in braces, your child’s teeth will have reached ideal placement. Your child will be given a customized retainer and come in for periodic recall visits.
Misaligned teeth and bite issues can cause problems with biting, chewing, and speaking. Dental and jaw issues can cause pain in the head and neck, headaches, and make things unpleasant for patients of all ages in Coral Springs.
