At Liang Orthodontics, we encourage you to bring your child to our office for an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven years; this age is recommended by both the American and Canadian Associations of Orthodontists. By bringing your child to our office while they are young, you can ensure that they receive orthodontic treatment when it is best for their particular smile needs. To learn more about the benefits of early orthodontic treatment in Washington, District Of Columbia, and to schedule your child’s consultation with our orthodontists, Drs. Liang and Liang, please call or visit us today.
While orthodontic treatments are available for patients of all ages, childhood and teenage years are a great time for orthodontic care, as the bones in the face are still developing and are much easier to guide into their proper positions. It is recommended that children receive their first orthodontic screening by age 7. Our orthodontists will carefully evaluate their teeth and jaws to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary, and when it should begin. When we can start treatments early, we can detect and correct any potential problems before they become serious, saving you time and money at our practice.
Early orthodontic treatment can help to:
- Provide more room for emerging teeth
- Preserve space for teeth that have not yet erupted
- Create a better facial symmetry for a more appealing appearance
- Reduce the need for a tooth extraction
- Reduce the overall treatment time needed
