Drs. Liang and Liang encourage you to bring your child to Liang Orthodontics for their first orthodontic evaluation by the time they turn seven years old. Bringing your child to our office when they are young can ensure that they receive orthodontic treatment when it is most beneficial to their smile. For more information about early orthodontic treatment in Potomac, Maryland, and to schedule your child’s appointment with our orthodontists, contact us at 301-983-3132.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening by age 7. Early childhood and the teenage years are great times for orthodontic care, as the teeth and bones are still developing during that period, and are much easier to guide into the correct positions. When you bring your child to our practice for his or her first orthodontic evaluation, we will carefully examine their teeth and jaws to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary, and when it should begin to ensure the best possible results.
Early orthodontic treatment allows us to address any potential problems in the earliest stages, before they become serious, which saves you both time and money.
Early orthodontic treatment is used to:
- Provide more space for emerging teeth
- Ensure adequate space for teeth that have not yet begun to emerge
- Manipulate jaw growth to create a more appealing facial symmetry
- Reduce the need for a tooth extraction in the future
- Reduce the overall treatment time needed
We invite you to contact our office today to schedule your child’s first orthodontic consultation and learn more about the benefits of early orthodontic treatment.
