Orthodontist for Children in Salisbury and Easton, MD
Put Your Child On the Path to A Healthy, Beautiful Smile
You probably know that it’s never too late to begin orthodontic treatment — but when it comes to your youngster’s teeth, did you know that earlier may be better than later? According to the American Association of Orthodontists, kids should have an initial orthodontic screening at age seven. If you’re considering an orthodontist for children in Salisbury and Easton, MD keep reading to learn more about the potential advantages of early evaluation at The Brace Place.
Early Evaluation Is Not Early Treatment
There are several ways that kids can benefit from seeing an orthodontist at an early age. But it’s important to recognize that early evaluation isn’t necessarily followed by early treatment. In fact, in most cases, if orthodontic work is needed, we simply monitor your child’s growth patterns until we see that it’s time for treatment to begin. This gives us an opportunity to get the best results in the most efficient way, and to help prevent future problems.
Conditions We Treat
Although every child’s development is different, in most kids the first adult molars have typically started to emerge by around age six. This, along with other developmental markers, lets us get a handle on the basic alignment of the teeth, from front to back and side to side. When you bring your child in, we will evaluate their bite and make sure there’s enough room in their mouth for teeth to erupt and for the arch to develop – and if not, to take action. Children often have alignment issues, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Extra teeth that interfere with bite
- Missing permanent teeth
- Ankylosed teeth (fused to the bone)
- Jaw growth problems or crowded teeth
We offer early treatment for these issues before continuing with braces for your child. Treatment for alignment problems include spacers, retainers, and treatments for issues with tooth and jaw growth.
