Interceptive Orthodontics

Dentist in Beacon, NY

Orthodontic treatment can often be highly successful in young children and teens. However, in some instances, it may be beneficial to receive an orthodontic evaluation at an early age.

Early orthodontic treatment can help reduce the chances of needing more complicated orthodontic treatment later. It is recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists that children should have an orthodontic evaluation no later than 7 years old.

At age 7, your child’s first permanent molars and incisors will have erupted, which will allow us to properly detect irregular growth patterns. When the jaw is still forming, it is more malleable, making early orthodontics an effective solution for many. Treatment for problems, such as a cross bite or space loss, may require more advanced and more costly correction if approached later.

Early orthodontic treatment can:

  • prevent overcrowding by creating room for teeth that have not erupted
  • create facial symmetry by guiding jaw growth
  • reduce the need for teeth removal
  • reduce treatment time with braces
