What are the benefits?

Dental irregularities such as misaligned teeth are easier to spot and treat in childhood. 

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first check-up with an orthodontist no later than age 7. By that age, a child will have a mix of baby and permanent teeth, and the orthodontist will be able to recognize orthodontic problems (“malocclusions”) even in their earliest stages. 

Early orthodontics involves guiding permanent teeth by intervening in a developing dental problem for better results in the future. Early orthodontics in Ventura, California takes place in two main phases.

Encourages healthy oral habits

It is common for children to develop harmful dental habits such as thumb sucking. However, if they don’t quit in time, it may lead to problems associated with alignment.

Lowers the risk of other dental issues

Crooked and misaligned teeth may be very difficult to clean properly. This makes them more susceptible to infections and other dental diseases.

Boosts confidence and appearance

Kids are mindful of their appearance and may struggle with esteem issues growing up. Having crooked or misaligned teeth may make them feel insecure about their smile. Early orthodontics in Ventura, California help straighten their teeth and boost their confidence.

Waiting until all your child’s permanent teeth and dental structures have matured makes it difficult to correct irregularities. Book an appointment for early orthodontics in Ventura, California to give your child a beautiful and healthy smile from a young age.
