As a parent, you have a lot of health-related issues you need to be aware of in order to ensure that your children are all in good health.
What a lot of parents overlook, however, is the importance of taking your child to the orthodontist as early as possible.

Let’s look at why it’s so important to get your children in for an orthodontic evaluation as soon as possible.

Speeds up the process

Do you remember how long your experience with braces seemed to drag on? Granted, we always remember unpleasant experiences as being longer than they really were, but if you take your kids to the orthodontist earlier in life, it’ll reduce the amount of time they spend at the orthodontist’s office.

Creates a game plan for treatment

By getting your children in early, this enables Dr. Jayson C. Haws to create an effective, quick plan to get your children’s smiles in line as effectively as possible.

Reduces complications

If you wait too long to take your kids to the orthodontist, they may have significant crowding problems due to the growth of adult teeth. Taking them in earlier allows the doctor to get ahead of these issues, minimize the crowding of teeth, and help your children have a straight smile far quicker than if you’d waited to bring them in.

Your kids should see an orthodontist at age 7. If they’re that age and haven’t seen one yet, please call today at 435-734-9144 to schedule a consultation appointment.
