Some orthodontic conditions are easier to correct if they are detected early by our orthodontist near Buffalo, NY. Early detection can also prevent more severe problems when your child’s permanent teeth start to emerge. More Than A Smile orthodontists recommend that you bring your child for their first orthodontic exam around age 7. We call this “interceptive orthodontic treatment,” or Phase I orthodontic treatment.
Interceptive orthodontics is based on our “growth-guidance” approach to evaluate your child’s overall dental development. Don’t worry – we don’t intend to put braces on your child just yet! In fact, your child may not even need comprehensive treatment in the future. A Phase I treatment is used to correct a problem that may be caused by a harmful habit, such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting. We also evaluate the bite and jaw alignment to see if there is any preventative treatment for issues like a narrow palate or a deep bite. Preventative treatment can eliminate the need for any extractions and potentially the need for braces!
