Though orthodontic care is effective at any age, the ideal time to bring in your child for her first visit is around age 7. There’s no charge for the initial consultation and early diagnosis of problems means faster and more effective treatment!
Have an older child? No worries! We can solve orthodontic problems at any age. We’ll make the treatment as convenient and worry-free as possible.
Here’s what you and your child can expect:
- At your no-cost initial consultation, we will conduct a thorough examination of your child’s teeth. This includes screening for crowding with erupting and un-erupted teeth.
- If issues with bite or crowding exist, we will discuss options for a course of action. In many cases, this may mean a course of monitoring the teeth while adult teeth descend, until an optimal treatment time is reached.
- We are honest about your child’s treatment needs. If your child doesn’t need braces, we’ll tell you.
Getting braces doesn’t need to be scary. Dr. Poulsen puts his patients at ease and makes the process enjoyable.
When a child has crooked or otherwise misshaped teeth, he or she might be smile-shy. After visiting Poulsen Orthodontics, your child will smile with confidence!
