Our team at Bowen Orthodontics realizes the countless benefits that can come when a child visits the orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why Dr. Bowen follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7. If you are looking for a children’s orthodontist in St. Robert, MO, or Rolla, MO, then we are here for you!
When your child sees Dr. Bowen, he will simply take that opportunity to examine your child’s bite and jaw alignment. This allows Dr. Bowen to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted. Most parents who bring their child to Dr. Bowen for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all.
Ultimately, only a trained orthodontic specialist can tell for sure if your child would benefit from early treatment, since many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. However, if you observe any of the following signs in your child, then we strongly recommend that you bring your child to see our children’s orthodontist in St. Robert, MO, and Rolla, MO, for an evaluation.
In the cases where Dr. Bowen does recommend preventative orthodontics, this early treatment can bring about numerous benefits for a child, including…
Even when early orthodontic prevention is not necessary or recommended, early evaluation still allows our children’s orthodontist in St. Robert, MO, and Rolla, MO, to monitor a child’s growth patterns and focus on the ideal time to employ braces or orthodontics after all their teeth have erupted.
