Early childhood intervention with braces is becoming increasingly common because this method is beneficial in order to address conditions before they become a serious issue. Problems such as cross bite and overcrowding in younger children require early treatment, eliminating the need for more extensive treatment and even extractions later.
When you bring your child to our Irvine, California dental office, Dr. Jeffrey Robertson will monitor your child closely looking for any indication that orthodontic intervention may benefit them. If he sees something you should know about, he will let you know right away so that you can make the best decisions possible regarding your child’s health. We can describe the conditions and treatment possibilities.
The Pros of Early Treatment
In some cases, early treatment reduces the overall cost and time necessary for treatment later in your child’s teen years. We could avoid the need for surgeries and extractions down the line by treating your child during their growing years.
Dr. Robertson is an expert at treating children and orthodontics is no exception. We make it is easy and convenient to get comprehensive, quality dental care for your entire family. To find out if your child needs orthodontics, contact us to schedule an evaluation. We look forward to supporting the overall health and beauty of your entire family.
