As an orthodontic specialist offering Fair Oaks and Citrus Heights orthodontics for children, Dr. DeLurgio realizes the countless benefits that can come when a child visits the orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why our team at DeLurgio Orthodontics follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7.
When your child sees Dr. DeLurgio, she will simply take that opportunity to examine your child’s bite and jaw alignment. This allows Dr. DeLurgio to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted. Most parents who bring their child to our Citrus Heights orthodontic office for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all.
Ultimately, only a trained orthodontic specialist can tell for sure if your child would benefit from early treatment, since many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. However, if you observe any of the following signs in your child, then we strongly recommend that you bring your child to see Dr. DeLurgio for an evaluation.
In the cases where Dr. DeLurgio does recommend preventative orthodontics, this early treatment can bring about numerous benefits for a child, including…
Even when early orthodontic prevention is not necessary or recommended, early evaluation still allows Dr. DeLurgio to monitor your child’s growth patterns and focus on the ideal time to employ braces or orthodontics after all their teeth have erupted.
