Early Orthodontic Treatment for Outstanding Results

Orthodontic treatment is needed at a younger age for some children to address and correct issues with the teeth and jaw structure, such as crowding, spacing issues, open bite, and crossbite. Total Kids Dental offers orthodontics in Phoenix to help correct problems with your child’s bite for a healthier and more attractive smile.

If you have orthodontic concerns, call (602) 610-0338 to have your child’s bite evaluated in our office. Schedule an appointment today for our Phoenix orthodontic treatment.

Can Children Benefit from Orthodontic Care Early

The old wisdom for orthodontic care was to wait until a child had all of his or her teeth to treat orthodontic problems. However, orthodontic care is not just for teens and adults. There are a number of reasons for orthodontic treatment for younger patients and many children benefit from earlier treatment.

Some common reasons for earlier orthodontic treatment include:

  • Identifying the potential for future problems
  • Creating space for permanent teeth to emerge
  • Improving alignment to prevent cavities and dental disease
  • Shorter treatment time

Not every problem requires early orthodontics in Phoenix. In some cases, it is best to take a wait and see approach to orthodontic care. If this is the case for your child, we will monitor the development of their teeth during routine exams and work with you to determine the best time for treatment in the future, if needed. Our treatment is always focused on the needs of the individual patient.

When to Have an Orthodontic Evaluation

We focus on quality dental care and total mouth care, including preventive care, treatment for dental problems, and total dental care for orthodontics in Phoenix. This includes evaluating the child’s bite to determine if early orthodontic intervention is appropriate for that child. The American Association of Orthodontics recommend that children be evaluated by the age of seven to determine if orthodontic treatment is needed.

The recommendation for orthodontic evaluations by seven years old is not arbitrary. This age is optimal for the development of the jaw and mouth. For example, if there is crowding or not enough space in the mouth for teeth to come in, treating the problem early enables the teeth to be guided into the desired position and avoids the need for extraction in the future.

State-of-the-Art Technology

At Total Kids Dental, we use state-of-the-art technology for orthodontics in Phoenix, including computer graphics and advanced digital imaging to provide the best possible care for our young patients. We are committed to helping our patients achieve beautiful and healthy smiles and encouraging lifelong dental health through a full range of dental treatments and orthodontics.

We accept most dental insurance plans to help cover the cost of your child’s orthodontic care. It is important to note that dental insurance generally only covers a portion of orthodontic treatment. We offer financing options with payment plans through Care Credit and custom payment plans to help make your child’s treatment more affordable for your family’s budget.

If you think your child may benefit from our Phoenix orthodontic care, we encourage you to call (602) 610-0338 or contact online to schedule an evaluation.
