Children’s Orthodontist in Syracuse, UT

According to The American Association of Orthodontists®, the optimal time for a child to schedule their first orthodontic consultation is around or just before their seventh birthday. Most kids this age are not ready for orthodontic treatment, but an early exam with X-rays has proven to be beneficial in monitoring oral growth and development so a proper treatment start time can be determined. Many dental and oral growth problems go undetected when kids are not examined early by an orthodontist. When our team recommends early orthodontic treatment, it is often because there are problems that can be intercepted that would likely become more serious if treatment were delayed until a later age. These type of early treatments, often called phase one treatments, can help with the following:

  • Making room for crowded erupting teeth
  • Maintaining room for erupting teeth to avoid overcrowding
  • Guiding jaw growth to encourage facial symmetry
  • Reducing the need for tooth extraction by ensuring overcrowding does not cause damage to the smile
  • Reducing the overall treatment time
  • Screening for possible airway or breathing abnormalities

Your child does not need to have a referral from a dentist to schedule an orthodontic consultation. Call our office and schedule a free consultation to receive a professional, customized treatment plan from Dr. Coleman.

Dr. Brett Coleman offers children’s orthodontics to evaluate your child’s mouth and determine if early treatment is needed. An early examination of your child’s teeth and mouth allow our orthodontist and team to monitor their oral growth and development so we can determine if orthodontic care is right for them and when their treatment should begin.
