Early Orthodontic Treatment in Coral Springs & Boca Raton, FL

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic check-up no later than age seven. Even though most people think of preteens and teens when they think of braces, there are good reasons your child should get an orthodontic evaluation much sooner.

The Importance of Early Orthodontic Treatment
  • While your child's teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect. Dr. Cohen will be able to recognize potential problems early and correct them before they become more serious. This saves you and your not only child time, but also money
  • Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and the erupting teeth while some baby teeth are still present.
  • Recognizing an orthodontic problem at an early age does not always lead to early treatment. The check-up may reveal that there is no immediate indication for treatment, thereby easing a parent's mind. Often, Dr. Cohen will identify a potential problem but only recommend monitoring the child's growth and development, and then, if indicated, begin treatment at a later time when the child is older. In other cases, Dr. Cohen might find a problem that can benefit from early treatment. In these cases he will create a personalized treatment plan for your child that will prove to be the most beneficial for his/her specific problem.
  • Early orthodontic treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, early treatment will allow Dr. Cohen to achieve results that would not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
  • Early orthodontic treatment may give Dr. Cohen the chance to:
    • Guide jaw growth
    • Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
    • Correct harmful oral habits such as finger or thumb sucking and tongue thrusting
    • Improve the way lips meet
    • Create room for crowded or erupting teeth and guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
    • Improve appearance and self-esteem
