Our expert orthodontists advice on early braces treatment for children

At Marblehead and Middleton Smiles, our expert orthodontists recommend that early orthodontic treatment for children is best completed in two phases, known as two-phase orthodontic treatment.


Unlocking the Benefits of Early Orthodontic Care for Children and Teens

At Marblehead and Middleton Smiles, our skilled orthodontist and expert team provide complimentary checkups for children as young as 7! These initial assessments are vital for evaluating the potential advantages of early treatment. To book your child's appointment and gain further insights, contact our team without delay.

The formative years of childhood and adolescence provide a unique window of opportunity for orthodontic care. As endorsed by the American Association of Orthodontists®, it is recommended that your child undergo their initial orthodontic assessment by the age of 7. We strongly encourage you to schedule a visit to our office by this age, allowing us to assess the necessity for orthodontic intervention. Commencing treatment at an early stage often enables us to identify and rectify potential issues before they progress, ultimately resulting in both time and cost savings.

Early orthodontic treatment proves advantageous because, at this tender age, a child's teeth are not fully erupted. This circumstance permits us to guide their eruption and address any concerns in their nascent stages.

Upon your visit to our practice, our orthodontist will expertly evaluate the need for treatment and the ideal starting point. If early orthodontic intervention is recommended, we will craft a personalized treatment plan tailored for optimal outcomes. For in-depth information and to initiate your child's orthodontic consultation at our esteemed practice, we invite you to reach out to us today.


Benefits of an early orthodontic treatment

 Early orthodontic treatment may help to:

  • Provide more room for erupting or crowded teeth.

  • Reserve space for unerupted teeth.

  • Guide jaw growth to improve or create facial symmetry.

  • Reduce the likelihood of tooth extraction in the future.

  • Reduce overall treatment time when orthodontic treatment begins.
