Your child can benefit from early treatment for orthodontic issues, and the head start that it provides. Here at the office of Richard C. Kardovich DDS, PC, we can offer impressive results for children as young as age 7, with either minimization or elimination of future care as the outcome.
It used to be standard to bring children in when they were around the age of 12 to 14, but waiting that long means that what may be simple issues today can grow to become complicated and difficult ones in just a few years. Why take the risk of your child requiring a long period of time wearing braces, headgear, or other appliances when our Brookhaven orthodontics for children can get started now? Noticeable signs that your child should be taking advantage of early treatment are tooth crowding, too much space between teeth, breathing through the mouth, early loss of baby teeth or having them remain in too long, difficulties chewing, finger or thumb sucking, shifting jaws or the jaws being out of proportion with the rest of her or his face, and clicking or other sounds being made by his or her jaws. However, virtually any concern that you have with regard to your child’s tooth positioning and jaw development should be brought to the attention of our office, so that our Brookhaven orthodontics for children can be utilized to improve the situation. Space can be maintained for teeth that have yet to grow in, and jaw growth can be actively guided. In fact, even if you do not notice any of the above indications in your child, it’s a good idea to bring her or him in for an evaluation so that any hidden issues can be identified and dealt with proactively.
Book an appointment with our office today to bring your child in for possible early treatment with our Brookhaven orthodontics for children.
