Children's Orthodontics, Benefits of Early Treatment
A conservative approach to treatment
You love your children and you want only the best for them. That’s why you take the time to make sure they eat right, do their homework and go to bed on time. Like all good parents, you naturally want your children to succeed in life so they can be happy, productive adults down the line. Everyone knows that giving them a good foundation helps children throughout every life stage.
There is more to a smile than you might think
But did you know that studies have shown that how a child feels about themselves impacts their ability to succeed in other areas of life? It is true. A balanced childhood gives your child the tools to tackle everything else that life will throw at them down the line.
A reason for your child to smile
And that starts with a carefree smile they are not ashamed to show. If you think about it, it just makes sense that having a straight, even and radiant smile provides yet another stepping stone for your children to enjoy a more fulfilling life.
At Barakat Orthodontics, we understand the specific orthodontic needs of children. We take the time to explain each procedure. We work hard to create a safe and supportive environment so your child can enjoy a lifetime of delightful smiles.
Early intervention offers numerous benefits to early orthodontic treatment. Some of the most direct results of early treatment for children include:
- Creating space for crowded, erupting permanent teeth
- Creating facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth
- Decreasing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- Preserving space for unerupted teeth
- Reducing the need for tooth removal
- Reducing treatment time with braces
- Improve self-esteem & increase self-confidence
At Barakat Orthodontics, your children matter to us too. We work to give your child a smile that they can feel good about. The goal of early treatment is to save our patients’ permanent teeth.
We can make room, if necessary, so that we can prevent extractions of permanent teeth in the future.
