Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child receives his or her first orthodontic screening by age 7. By starting treatment early, we are able to recognize potential problems and correct them before they become more serious. 

During your child's initial evaluation, we will first determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed.   The Phase I treatment plan can include preventive, interceptive or modifying treatment. Orthodontic appliances may be placed to prevent a problem from occurring, correct a current problem or help direct jawbone growth. 

Dr. Crews is very conservative and will only recommend early treatment if she feels it is absolutely necessary. 

To find out if your child is a candidate for early interceptive treatment, please call us to schedule a consultation.
