A Head Start to a Great Start
At Davis and Goldberg Orthodontics, we know nothing is more important to Greensboro and Highpoint-area parents like us than our kids. We want them to be happy and healthy, and that starts with a great smile!
Come See Us By Age Seven
Though it’s never too early to start thinking about your child’s oral health and alignment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child have an appointment with a licensed orthodontist around age seven.
This is when enough teeth will be in place to allow Dr. Goldberg, Dr. Davis or Dr Seitz to evaluate your child’s orthodontic development. Believe it or not, they can predict future problems and potentially start guiding your child’s mouth through the growth process.
That’s because, by this age, they can spot developing tooth and jaw problems and recommend early treatment if deemed necessary. This can make a huge difference in your child’s smile. In most cases, early treatment isn’t necessary. If it is, though, it can be a real game-changer.
Choosing the Best Time for Treatment
Orthodontic treatment usually begins between the ages of 9 and 14, though this can vary depending on your child’s unique needs. Some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they are treated early.
If Dr. Goldberg, Dr. Davis or Dr Seitz thinks your child will need treatment in the future, they’ll let you know the best time to begin treatment. This gives your orthodontist the best chance to:
- Guide jaw growth
- Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
- Correct harmful oral habits
- Improve appearance and self-esteem in your child
- Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
- Create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips, and face
