Early Treatment

Utah Orthodontic Care strives to provide your child with the orthodontic foundation necessary to have a beautiful, healthy smile for life. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that a child should schedule their first orthodontic visit at the age of 7. During this visit, a doctor can analyze the child’s bite to see if there are any problems that could be treated early. By catching small problems with your child’s bite before they become large ones, our doctors can help save you lots of money down the road.

Early Orthodontic Problems To Look For

In many cases, early orthodontic treatment provides opportunities to have extremely positive benefits in the future. If our doctors determine your child is a candidate, early treatment can do many things, including:

  • Improve the eruption pattern of teeth
  • Positively influence jaw growth
  • Reduce the need for tooth extractions
  • Correct harmful habits
  • Decrease the length and difficulty of future treatment
  • Improve self-esteem
