SEE BELOW ON THE OUR PROCESS FOR EARLY INTERVENTION
At your initial consultation, our doctors will do a thorough examination of your child and evaluate his or her jaw growth and dental eruption. There are certain orthodontic problems we look for at this age that, if not corrected early, will lead to bigger problems down the road. In these situations, we recommend early treatment before all the permanent teeth have erupted. However, most of the time, we just plan to monitor development on a complimentary basis through our 7&Up Club and wait for ideal timing—which usually corresponds to when all of the adult teeth are present.
