Giving your child the gift of a healthy and beautiful smile is priceless! Sometimes, this involves orthodontic treatment or braces to straighten their teeth.
Most kids don't need orthodontic treatment until around the ages of 11 or 12 years old. However, there are some children with specific bite concerns (overbite or underbite) or severe crowding, that may benefit from early intervention with orthodontic treatment. This is why our dentists evaluate all children for orthodontic treatment at the ages of seven or eight.
Early orthodontic treatment allows us to take advantage of your son or daughter's growth to make space for incoming adult teeth or correct bite issues. While this typically means two phases of orthodontic treatment, it also usually makes the second phase of treatment easier and more efficient.
When your child visits Dental Solutions for pediatric dentistry, Dr. Harmon-Grantham or Dr. Burris will monitor their oral development and make you aware of any concerns or the need for orthodontic treatment as soon as possible.
The great news is that if your son or daughter needs braces in Jonesboro, AR, they can complete their treatment right here at Dental Solutions, which makes it simple and convenient for your entire family!
