Orthodontic Treatment for Kids in Austin

Orthodontists for Kids in Austin

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends a child see an orthodontist by the age of 7. While most 7-year-olds do not require treatment, it is a great time to assess what orthodontic problems your child may have in the future and to address any growth concerns that may be present. We evaluate your child’s jaw growth and emerging teeth.

Early evaluation means that any issues your child might have will be detected early and can be treated when it is most advantageous to the patient. Many times, early detection can save your child lengthier treatments in their future, as well as allow for treatments only possible for children in their younger adolescent years.

Start Your Kids with Early Orthodontic Treatments Today

Early orthodontic treatment is advantageous because a young child’s teeth have not finished erupting; this allows us to guide their eruption and address any problems at the earliest possible stage. Whether your child needs removable or fixed appliances, early orthodontic treatment can help to:

  • Provide more room for crowded erupting teeth
  • Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
  • Create facial symmetry by manipulating jaw growth
  • Reduce the possible need for tooth extraction
  • Reduce the overall treatment time

When you bring your child to our practice, our Austin orthodontists will be able to determine whether treatment is needed and when it should begin. If early orthodontic treatment is needed, we will create a personalized treatment plan for optimal results.
