Act Now to Improve Your Child’s Smile

Few parents know that they should have their children’s smile checked for potential orthodontic problems around their 7th birthday. Identifying those problems early leads to greater treatment success and less time overall spent in orthodontic care. Getting your child the help they need now will pay dividends in the future.

Many orthodontic problems can be corrected at an early age by one of these methods:

  • Interceptive Orthodontics – Placing braces at an early age can correct alignment problems before they worsen. After we remove the braces, we’ll place a retainer that will help keep your child’s teeth in their new positions.
  • Palatal Expanders – A narrow jaw can affect your child’s smile and how they breathe. Getting an expansion device will push their upper jaw outward and guide how their mouth develops as they grow. This keeps their upper and lower teeth aligned and prevents long-term bite problems.
  • Space Maintainers – When your child has lost their baby teeth before their adult teeth are ready to erupt, space maintainers keep their teeth from shifting positions. This makes it easier for the adult teeth to emerge correctly when they do come in.

Don’t wait to schedule your child’s orthodontic evaluation! Find out about preventive orthodontics in Ridgefield, WA. Call Oasis Dental at 360-869-0795. You can also schedule an appointment online.

Common Questions About Preventive Orthodontics

What is preventive orthodontics?

The key to what preventive orthodontics does is in its name. These proactive solutions for young children aim to lessen or even eliminate the need for further orthodontic treatment when they are older, often by ensuring teeth have enough room to properly erupt. The solutions we use include interceptive orthodontics, space maintainers, and palatal expanders.

How much do preventive orthodontics cost?

As with other kinds of orthodontics, the cost depends on the issues we need to address and the solutions we use to do so. When we examine your child, we will create a recommended treatment plan. We will walk you through all aspects of the plan, including cost. We will also review your possible payment options, including in-house financing.

Who needs preventive orthodontics?

We will keep a close eye on your child’s dental development during their exams. Your dentist can often determine if your child would benefit from preventive orthodontics by the age of 6 or 7. Often a simple treatment like a space maintainer is enough to ensure that teeth are able to erupt normally, without crowding or other issues that can lead to an improperly aligned bite.
