Early Treatment for Younger Children Milton, GA

Early Treatment for Younger Children

Children can benefit from early orthodontic monitoring and evaluations. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends early evaluations to monitor jaw and tooth growth and alignment, beginning at age seven. In some cases, early intervention or treatment may be indicated for younger children if there are bite issues present that can impact their oral health or improve the appearance of their smile.

Phase 1, or interceptive orthodontic treatment, is designed to address some orthodontic issues before they become more pronounced. The treatments are usually shorter in duration and less invasive than full orthodontic treatment that occurs once the majority of permanent teeth have grown into the mouth. Early treatment for younger children can improve their bite and smile appearance, which can be beneficial for children that are self-conscious of the way their smile looks.

For a free orthodontic consultation for your child, contact us at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville. Our orthodontist can perform a thorough exam to evaluate your child’s teeth, bite and jaw development. The health of your child’s smile is as important to us as it is to you, which is why the consultation is always free.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
