15 Apr What benefits come along with early orthodontic treatment?
Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Prudent intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.
Some of the most direct results of interceptive treatment are:
•Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
•Creating facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
•Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
•Preserving space for unerupted teeth
•Reducing the need for tooth removal
•Reducing treatment time with braces
