Early treatment is often less invasive and is addressing some important concerns while we wait for all the adult teeth to surface. By addressing some of the orthodontic concerns at an early age, Dr. Sepi might eliminate the need for future permanent tooth removal.
Some of the habits and problems that develop earlier in life such as thumb sucking or breathing style can have some effects on growth later in life. The duration of treatment is usually around 9 months and after that, Dr. Sepi will determine if your child needs second round of treatment once all permanent teeth come in.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children are screened by an orthodontist by the age of 7. At iSmile Orthodontics, Dr. Sepi offers early treatment for your children, guiding adult teeth into their proper form and spot over time.
