Rising Star is our program that provides children ages 5 to 10 with quality care to prepare to reach their smile’s full potential!
The goal of early treatment is to intercept the developing challenges in children’s mouths and jaws to provide adequate space for incoming permanent teeth. Some orthodontic issues may be easier to correct if they are found and treated early. A patient may require a second course of treatment after all permanent teeth have come in to move those teeth into their best positions.
Seeing an orthodontist by age 7 can help young patients developing certain issues like: Cross Bite, Open Bite, Deep Bite, Underbite, Protrusion, Crowding, Spacing, and Oral Habits.
Kids have a mix of baby and permanent teeth around age 7. Our orthodontists are uniquely trained to evaluate children’s growth as well as the exchange of baby teeth for permanent teeth. Orthodontists are expertly qualified to determine whether a problem exists, or if one is developing.
