Any patient can benefit from orthodontic treatment, but when it comes to straight teeth, earlier is always better. The more years a patient has with straight teeth, the more years they’ll have feeling more confident in their smile, and enjoying greater oral health. Having straight teeth as a teenager can have a positive effect on life in adulthood. Getting your child orthodontic treatment can help them develop confidence that they need, and help them avoid dental issues. At Trapnell Orthodontics, Dr. Brian recommends that patients come in for their first orthodontic consultation when they are seven, or at the first sign of a misalignment issue.
Get Orthodontic Treatment for Your Children Early
As soon as the adult molars first begin to erupt, Dr. Brian can evaluate your child for potential misalignment issues. Corrective treatment is most often the easiest and most affordable when a patient is a child. Dr. Brian and his team in Springville can detect misalignment issues early and correct them quickly so that your child can enjoy the benefits of a straighter, healthier smile longer. By putting an emphasis on early treatment, we can save our patients time, resource, and convenience.
The Benefits of Early Treatment
- Early treatment allows children to achieve straight teeth when misalignment issues are at the optimal stage for correction.
- Straight teeth are easier to clean and maintain. Early treatment can help lower your child’s risk for cavities and other dental issues.
- By making early treatment a priority, children learn about the importance of oral health and taking care of their smile. These lessons can help them develop good oral hygiene habits and enjoy a lasting smile.
- Early treatment can help your child’s self esteem and confidence. Children who feel more confident in their smiles are more likely to share their smile with other people and feel more positive.
