How Do I Know If My Child Needs Orthodontic Treatment?

It is usually difficult for you to determine if treatment is necessary because there are many problems that can occur even though the front teeth look straight. Also, there are some problems that look intimidating and complex which will resolve on their own. Asking your general dentist is a good reference, but Beisiegel Orthodontics is your best resource since orthodontics is all we do. Our initial exam is comprehensive and informative, and we would be more than happy to see your child and make any recommendations necessary.

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that your child be evaluated by age seven. An orthodontic screening no later than age seven enables the orthodontist to detect and evaluate problems that exist, advise if treatment will be necessary, and determine the best time for the treatment. Early detection of any orthodontic problems is important in order to take early corrective action and avoid more difficult treatment later.

Dr. Beisiegel is experienced in perfecting smiles of all ages from early childhood to adults! We want to help you feel confident about your smile no matter your life stage. If you are looking for a faster, more comfortable treatment option – Damon® braces or Wilckodontics may be right for you. We also offer clear alternatives with ceramic braces and Inspire braces. We will work with each patient to determine which treatment option is best for you!
