At myOrthodontist in Calgary, we believe in starting with early preventative orthodontic treatment. Although it is common for teenagers to have braces, orthodontic treatment can begin as early as 7 to 10 years old. Sometimes waiting until your child becomes a teenager can make orthodontic treatment more difficult or longer in some cases. Implementing early preventative treatment allows us to monitor how teeth are coming in. This allows us to influence the growth of the jaws in a positive manner. In this phase, we can also help to improve the width of the dental arches and both the swallowing and chewing functions. In addition, our early treatment also allows us to place an emphasis on airway centric orthodontics. If we detect problems early, we can get ahead of the curve to solve them! In some cases, Invisalign clear braces may also be a solution for orthodontic problems.
Contact us at myOrthodontist Calgary for braces for kids or early orthodontic treatment. We’ll schedule a consultation to give you the treatments options that suit your child’s needs.
