Early Treatment (kids)

Experts you can trust to care for your child with compassion

It seems like children younger and younger are getting braces these days…and for good reason. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends every child see an orthodontic specialist by age 7 to evaluate if growth and development of the teeth and jaws are following normal patterns. Although the majority of children do not need early treatment, if issues are present, a short phase of interceptive orthodontic treatment can provide huge benefits and possibly save your child from developing complex orthodontic problems later that may require more invasive treatment (such as permanent tooth extractions or even jaw surgery). Drs. Cornali and McDonald are experts in growth and development of the teeth and jaws and will thoroughly evaluate your child to see if early treatment is necessary to guide your child to a healthy bite and smile.
