Advanced Orthodontics


Early treatment for kids 7 and up.

At Advanced Orthodontics, we are dedicated to providing younger patients with an orthodontic experience that is  enjoyable and effective. Our  team creates an inviting atmosphere that younger patients love when they visit. Starting at age 7, children shouldbe seen by our office to monitor their jaw growth and alignment. During these free visits, they can join our kids club and each time they come in to monitor their growth, they will enjoy a special goodie from our team.

When to have your child seen by an orthodontist

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that you schedule your child’s first orthodontic consultation around the age of seven when their first permanent teeth start to emerge. By assessing the growth patterns of their teeth and jaw at this early stage, we can make well-informed decisions about future treatment options. We prioritize providing essential services that will benefit our patients’ future smiles and will never rush your child into braces treatment before it’s necessary.

Early treatment for your child

During growth and development visits, we can also detect harmful oral habits such as thumb-sucking, prolonged use of pacifiers beyond the age of one, and tongue thrusting. These habits, if continued past a young age, can lead to damage to your child’s teeth and oral bite.

Once your child reaches an appropriate age, we may suggest Invisalign treatment or modern braces to align their bite and straighten their teeth, creating a healthier, more attractive smile.

  • Early treatment has numerous benefits, including:
  • Proper jaw development,
  • Reduced need for permanent tooth extraction or impaction
  • Minimized risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Optimal positioning of permanent teeth
  • Correction of harmful oral habits
  • Avoidance of jaw surgery in later life
  • Preservation or addition of space for permanent teeth, and improved self-esteem and smile appearance.
