What is early orthodontic treatment?

Early orthodontic treatment is a solution available at Constant and Contro Orthodontics that makes oral health issues easier to correct.

It helps prevent serious tooth or bite problems as children age and helps permanent teeth erupt properly. Early orthodontic treatment can address jaw structural issues, too.

What are the benefits of early orthodontic treatment?

Some of the many benefits your child can experience with early orthodontic treatment at Constant and Contro Orthodontics include:

  • Low risk of complications
  • Cost savings
  • Bite correction
  • Reduced risk of needing future orthodontics
  • Correct permanent tooth eruption
  • Improved facial structure
  • Greater self-esteem

Early orthodontic treatment can save you time and money in the long run, often making future orthodontic treatments for children less invasive.

For example, if your child needs two phases of orthodontic treatment, starting early means the second phase might involve just minor tooth placement corrections.

Does my child need early orthodontic treatment?

To find out if your child is a candidate for early orthodontic treatment at Constant and Contro Orthodontics, their provider reviews their oral health history, examines their teeth and bite, and takes dental X-rays if needed. Early treatment helps correct:

  • Deep bites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Overjets
  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Missing teeth
  • Teeth that don’t erupt properly

The highly trained orthodontists discuss your preferences and desired outcome before personalizing an orthodontic solution that best matches your child’s needs. They work with you to develop a treatment plan that you and your child feel most comfortable with.

What should I expect during early orthodontic treatment?

During early orthodontics treatment at Constant and Contro Orthodontics, your child might receive traditional braces, clear braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, or other orthodontic solutions. Some children undergo surgical procedures to correct jaw issues or a misaligned bite.

What happens after early orthodontic treatment?

After early orthodontics treatment, your child can enjoy the many benefits of straighter teeth, a better bite, and more self-confidence.

They might wear a retainer during certain times of the day or at night as directed by their orthodontist or undergo additional orthodontic treatments in the future if needed.
