Traditional Braces

A lifetime of broad, beautiful, healthy smiles

While orthodontic treatment most often begins between the ages of 9 and 14, some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they’re treated early. If it appears that treatment will be needed, Dr. David Chow can advise you as to the ideal time to begin. This gives Dr. Chow the best chance to:

  • Guide jaw growth
  • Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
  • Correct harmful oral habits
  • Improve appearance and self-esteem
  • Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
  • Improve the way lips meet

All kids should get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7

To have a smile that’s good for life, your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned — in other words, a healthy bite. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. By then, your child’s teeth have developed enough to where subtle problems can be spotted with jaw growth and emerging teeth.

Give your child the gift of a healthy smile

Not only do well-aligned teeth look good and feel good, they also are important to good dental health. Poorly aligned teeth can lead to dental problems. Not everyone needs orthodontic treatment. But if your child does need help, it pays to start treatment when you have the greatest chance for success. Make sure your child receives an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7.
