While many of our patients are teens or adults anxious to improve their teeth and their self confidence, the best way to ensure consistent oral health is to visit early.

How Early Should We See An Orthodontic Specialist?

The doctors at Utah Orthodontic Care and the American Association of Orthodontics suggest that children have an orthodontic evaluation for the first time by the age of seven. At this time, permanent teeth have erupted but bones are still growing so some conditions, such as crowding, may be easier to address. During this visit, a doctor can analyze your child’s bite to see if there are any problems that could be treated early. By catching small problems with your child’s bite before they become large ones, our doctors can potentially help save you lots of money down the road due to faster and less complicated treatments.

Early Orthodontic Treatment Can Solve Challenges

It’s possible that when our orthodontic experts examine your child’s moth that no treatment will be necessary at that time. But in many cases, early orthodontic treatment from Utah Orthodontics is recommended and provides opportunities to have extremely positive benefits in the future. If our doctors determine your child is a candidate, early treatment can do many things, including:

  • Improve the eruption pattern of teeth
  • Positively influence jaw growth
  • Reduce the need for tooth extractions
  • Correct harmful habits
  • Decrease the length and difficulty of future treatment
  • Improve self-esteem
