Preventive and Interceptive Treatment
Early Orthodontic Treatment in Denver
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children attend their first orthodontic appointment by age 7 because this is when your child’s permanent teeth are starting to erupt and their facial and jaw bones are still developing. While this may seem a bit early to some parents, early-age appointments will make treatment much easier for your child and the continued development allows Dr. Levin and Dr. Lowe to diagnose potential problems and create a treatment plan.
At Lowry Orthodontics, we use these first appointments to perform a full evaluation of your child’s facial/dental features. By examining your child’s jaw, bite, facial growth patterns, and erupting permanent teeth, we can uncover alignment problems at an early stage and begin planning orthodontic work.
We may also use these initial consultations to recommend interceptive orthodontic treatments such as poor oral habit control, strategic tooth extraction, palate expansion, and muscle exercises.
With preventative treatment, your child will have a great foundation for future orthodontic needs and we will be able to discuss the treatment options that best suit your child.
Call (303) 366-9090 to schedule your appointment with our Denver orthodontist for your child.
