Unlocking the Benefits of Early Orthodontic Care for Children and Teens
Our skilled orthodontist and expert team in Milford, Franklin and Northborough MA, provide complimentary checkups for children as young as 7! These initial assessments are vital for assessing the potential advantages of early treatment. To book your child's appointment and gain further insights, contact our team without delay.
The formative years of childhood and adolescence provide a unique window of opportunity for orthodontic care. As endorsed by the American Association of Orthodontists®, it is recommended that your child undergo their initial orthodontic assessment by the age of 7. We strongly encourage you to schedule a visit to our office by this age, allowing us to assess the necessity for orthodontic intervention. Commencing treatment at an early stage often enables us to identify and rectify potential issues before they progress, ultimately resulting in both time and cost savings.
Early orthodontic treatment proves advantageous because, at this tender age, a child's teeth are not fully erupted. This circumstance permits us to guide their eruption and address any concerns in their nascent stages.
Upon your visit to our practice, our pediatric dentist will expertly evaluate the need for treatment and the ideal starting point. If early orthodontic intervention is recommended, we will craft a personalized treatment plan tailored for optimal outcomes. For in-depth information and to initiate your child's orthodontic consultation at our esteemed practice, we invite you to reach out to us today.
