Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists advises that children be seen by an orthodontist around age 7, and for good reason.

 

By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth and any crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, open-bites, and crossbites can be evaluated and treated, reducing the likelihood of surgery or extractions. 

 

Early treatment will allow Dr. Maruko to guide the growth of your child's jaw and help the permanent teeth come in straight, create space for crowded or impacted teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and widen the upper and lower arches for a broader, fuller smile.

 

Once early treatment (the first phase of a two phase treatment) is completed, your child will undergo an observation period while we wait for all of the permanent teeth erupt in order to finish the second phase of treatment when all of the permanent teeth are fully aligned and any bite problems are fully corrected.

 

Seeking early treatment will make your child's future orthodontic treatment less difficult, more stable, and will benefit from better results in faster time.

"I love my smile after going to Maruko Orthodontics!

They have a nice facility and the staff are friendly! :D
