At Perfect Smiles, we offer early orthodontic treatment in Chicago, Illinois. This treatment usually begins with an orthodontic screening for your child at age 7. That screening will indicate whether or not your child may be at risk for alignment issues later in life. Based on the results of that screening, our dentists may suggest a preventive treatment to solve an immediate problem or to prevent or reduce the need for treatment at a later age. This may involve the use a fixed or removable appliance.

How Can Early Orthodontic Treatment Help?

Early treatment can:

  • Give erupting teeth room to come in
  • Maintain the space needed for adult teeth that have not erupted
  • Possibly reduce the need for tooth extractions
  • Guide draw growth to improve appearance and oral function

Some Things to Think About

Because your child’s jaws are still growing, early orthodontic treatment can be extremely effective. Not only can your child enjoy a healthy and attractive smile, but you may be able to save time and money on future treatments.
