Early Orthodontics for Children

Early Orthodontics for Children

Sometimes a single step can bring in a lot of difference .

As a parent, you want the best for your kid. That includes healthy teeth and an attractive smile. At Prime Dental, our goal is to treat your children as if they were our own, by providing them with the best possible treatment.

To have a smile that’s lasting and healthy, your kid needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned – in other words, a healthy bite. It is recommended to get an orthodontic check-up no later than age seven.

Dr. Divya may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child’s growth and development, and then, if indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for your child. In other cases, she might find a problem that can benefit from early treatment.

Early treatment may prevent or stop a more serious problem from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In certain cases, Dr. Divya will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have completed growth.
