Super smiles start young! Orthodontic guidance can begin as young as seven years of age. So, if the child you have in orthodontic treatment now has younger brothers or sisters, or if you have a child between the ages of seven and ten, our orthodontist in Canton, Novi, Livonia, and Woodhaven, MI has some great news for you!
If you schedule a consultation for us to start observing your child’s growth every six months, they can join our Smile Squad! Our Smile Squad members receive a free tee-shirt and a cool membership card where they can enter drawings and participate in exclusive contests to win a variety of prizes.
As a preventive orthodontic office, we like to examine the children in our patient’s family by age seven. Usually, no orthodontic treatment will be needed at this time. However, by making use of early interceptive methods, or, in some cases, even before they occur, early evaluations can sometimes prevent the need for full braces later.
Often children within a family exhibit certain predictable patterns of growth in much of the same way they inherit similar eye and hair color. Like other family traits, particular patterns of tooth and jaw development also “run in families.”
We frequently find that parents feel they do not need to have younger children examined by us unless their general dentist or children’s dentist makes a referral. We do not find that dentists recognize the same problems that we do, any more than we would recognize some of the problems that they look for in general dentistry. True, we are all dentists, but the specialty of orthodontics is complex and specialized.
With these facts in mind, we hope you will have all your children examined by age seven so that we can give your family the maximum dental care they deserve. In the interest of prevention, we are happy to offer all initial examinations and follow-up recall visits at no charge. If you would like to take advantage of this offer please tell our Scheduling Coordinator. They will be glad to set up a convenient appointment time for you. We look forward to seeing you and having the opportunity to start your child on the road to a future full of smiles!
