Early orthodontic treatment

Give your child a head start on a healthy smile

Early assessment can help catch (and prevent) orthodontic issues before they worsen, which can save you time and money on lengthy treatments in your child’s teenage years.

Why should my child start orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontics is about much more than a beautifully straight smile. Treating crooked teeth and a misaligned bite can also prevent cavities, gum disease, and speech disorders from developing. Aligned teeth are also much better protected against injury.

When should I bring my child to see a Specialist Orthodontist?

We like to evaluate childens’ smiles around the age of 7 or 8. At this age, their general bite has been established, and Dr Seerone can diagnose and prevent potential orthodontic issues to get ahead of them.

While children might not need to start treatment at this young age, we can continue to monitor the growth of their smile and intervene at the opportune time. Luckily, we have plenty of gentle early treatment options to help shape your child’s smile.

Invisalign® First for small smiles

Invisalign® First is an Invisalign® treatment method designed just for children ages 6-10. The custom clear aligners help to shape the growth of your child’s jaws and make room for all their teeth in their smile. This gentle treatment is a great introduction to orthodontics.

Invisalign® clear aligners are removable, which means they won’t get in the way of your child’s regular eating, brushing, and flossing habits. The smooth plastic of the aligners won’t irritate their cheeks and gums when worn either, making treatment enjoyable from start to finish.

*Invisalign® aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label as well as the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
