Tooth alignment issues often begin during childhood. At The Smile Spot, our children’s orthodontics program is designed to help address such problems and help our younger patients in Edmonton & Spruce Grove, AB enjoy their smiles to the fullest. Some orthodontic conditions are simply easier to correct if they’re corrected early. And knowing that your child might need corrective dental work, or not need corrective dental work simply offers peace of mind. Interceptive orthodontic treatment is all about preventing more severe problems later on. It provides the opportunity for an orthodontist to have control over where the permanent teeth come in by addressing the structure of the jaw and teeth while the primary teeth are still in the mouth. By age seven, your child’s mouth has grown enough and has enough sound structure to know how it will develop as the permanent teeth start to emerge. Your child’s Dental Associates pediatric dentist is trained to identify bite issues at an early age and will refer a child to one of our orthodontists at the appropriate point in time.
At The Smile Spot, we recognize that early intervention can often help kids avoid future orthodontic complications. Our children’s orthodontics program aims to identify alignment issues at the earliest possible state and incorporate preventative measures to minimize the overall scope of treatment.
At The Smile SPot, we go out of our way to cater to kids. We understand that orthodontic treatment can be unappealing, if not frightening, to younger patients, so we do everything we can to put your child at ease. Our children’s orthodontics program is about more than just proper tooth alignment; it’s about making your child feel comfortable with his or her treatment every step of the way.
