Early Orthodontic Treatment
Traditionally, orthodontic treatment is initiated when most or all of the primary teeth have erupted. However, in some instances, children need to receive early or interceptive orthodontic treatment. Interceptive orthodontics may involve appliances such as retainers which can move one or a few teeth back into alignment, or may involve functional appliances which help promote balanced growth of the upper and lower jaws so that they can best accommodate the growing permanent teeth. Interceptive orthodontics does not totally eliminate the need for braces in the future. Generally, however, early orthodontic treatment lessens the severity of malocclusions and can significantly reduce the time it takes for braces to straighten teeth in the future. At GALLERY OF LITTLE SMILES, Dr. Lam is fully trained and equipped to manage early orthodontic problems in your child so that small problems today do not grow into bigger problems tomorrow.For more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Glass, please call our office in Florham Park, NJ at Florham Park Office Phone Number 973-295-6600.
