Early Treatment

13At Trapnell Orthodontics, we are confident that regardless of the age of our patients we can help them enhance and beautify their smiles. However, we feel that one of the very best ways to stop orthodontic issues and provide treatment solutions is to start treatment at an early age with early orthodontic evaluations.

There are some great benefits for having early orthodontic evaluations, including:

  • Assessment | During an early orthodontic evaluation, our team will determine whether there is a need for orthodontic intervention at that time or in the near future. We will carefully assess a number of factors, including the growth of your child’s mouth so that we can make sure that treatment – if necessary –  is begun at the appropriate time for your child. Our team can also recommend a checkup interval, and do various checkups to make sure that everything is on track.
  • Problem Prevention | Early treatment – along with early orthodontic evaluations – helps our team detect problems in the earliest stages, and allows us to make plans to head off these problems more effectively. If our team sees a problem, we can take the measures necessary to make sure your child’s smile stays on track.

Autumn PortraitEarly treatment can help us locate a number of issues that can occur with your child’s smile. Some of the issues that are most common include:

  • Teeth crowding
  • Gummy smiles
  • Overbites and underbites
  • Open bite

Our team loves to help children have beautiful smiles that can last their entire lives. With early treatment we can more effectively locate issues, treat these issues, and ensure that your child has the beautiful smile they deserve.
