Early & Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment
Many orthodontic problems can be prevented or treated at an early age, in many cases creating an optimum environment for straight, aligned teeth. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer early and interceptive orthodontic treatments for our young patients that are in the process of growing their adult smile. Our resident orthodontist Dr. Patel works closely with our pediatric dentist Dr. Chong to provide early orthodontic exams and interceptive treatments to our growing dental patients.
Using x-rays and thorough examination of the teeth and jaw, possible orthodontic problems can be identified by Dr. Patel in children of a very young age. From the formation of the first primary teeth up until the final wisdom tooth arrives, there are many opportunities for teeth to become misaligned or grow crooked in the jaw.
By keeping a close eye on the development of our patient’s teeth as children, Dr. Patel can offer preventive and interceptive treatments to correct or minimize orthodontic problems. This can greatly reduce the amount of orthodontic treatments that may be needed for comprehensive or corrective treatment in the future.
