Super smiles start young! Did you know orthodontic guidance can begin as young as age seven? You read that right! 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 orthodontists in Woodhaven, MI, have some great news for you!
Schedule a consultation for us to begin observing your child’s growth every six months and 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 fun prizes.
As a preventive orthodontic office, we prefer to examine the children in our patient’s family by age seven. Typically, no orthodontic treatment will be needed at this point. However, by making use of early interceptive methods, or, in some cases, catching issues 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.”
Parents tend to find it unnecessary to have younger children examined by us unless their child’s dentist makes a referral. However, we don’t always 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 bring all your children in for an examination by age seven so 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 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 life of healthy smiles!
