Early Treatment of Orthodontic Problems
As a graduate of the Ohio State University College of Dentistry, I was
fortunate to be exposed to many different opinions regarding controversial
topics in dentistry. The chairman of our orthodontic department was very
proactive in the early treatment of orthodontic problems. After graduation I
embraced this philosophy, and have been providing early orthodontic intervention
for hundreds of children. This approach treats teeth and jaws starting at birth
to manage growth, development, and deformations. Utilizing various treatment
modalities in one or more phases of orthodontics provides my patients with
beautiful, broad, healthy smiles. This early intervention recognizes that
80%-90% of jaw growth occurs by the age 8. Nurturing the period of growth from
birth to age 8 is important if adequate space for adult teeth is to be achieved,
thereby preventing the need for permanent teeth to be extracted. If someone you
know or love has early orthodontic problems I urge you to have them visit my
office for a no-charge consultation.
