Orthodontic treatment is the best way to ensure proper bite alignment and a beautiful smile. At Modern Dental Studio, Dr. Shetty of East Brunswick, New Jersey, works with parents to help them identify whether or not their child will benefit from early orthodontic treatment. The first visit to our office allows our team to evaluate your current smile thoroughly. Taking digital X-rays is a great way to see the teeth coming into the smile and whether or not they may affect the alignment of the dental arch and bite. Our dentists can provide treatment as necessary to ensure the best results.
What is the best age to begin orthodontic treatment?
No specific age is considered the “best” for starting orthodontic treatment. It depends on the individual and their unique needs. Some children may need to start treatment as early as seven years old, while others may not require it until they are teenagers or even adults. It is essential to have regular check-ups with your dental team or orthodontist so they can identify any potential issues and recommend the appropriate timing for treatment. You never know how early you can start orthodontics unless you work with a professional dental practice and skilled professionals!
What orthodontic treatments are available for patients at Modern Dental Studio?
Dr. Shetty is excited to offer different options when considering orthodontic services. These include myobraces, fixed and removable expansion Invisalign aligners, and CandidPro treatments. The one most appropriate for your child is determined with the assistance of our team at Modern Dental Studio. A thorough evaluation is performed to decide if a child needs early orthodontic treatment or intervention, and appropriate options are then discussed with their parents. The time to start orthodontia depends significantly on the development of the smile.
