ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN

It is essential to ensure proper growth and development of your child’s teeth so that your child does not have to undergo extensive orthodontic treatments or oral surgeries in future. Along with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age seven. By then, your child’s teeth and jaws have developed enough to where subtle problems can be spotted with jaw growth and emerging teeth. While orthodontic treatment most often begins between the ages of 9 and 14, some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they are treated early without any extensive surgery.  At Rejuvenate Dental Arts in Bethel,  we treat your kids with the widely used Two-Phase Orthodontic Treatment to straighten your child’s teeth and create a functional bite.
