Early Treatment

Early  TreatmentOrthodontic Treatment for Children

At Ward Orthodontics, we believe that smiles can be enhanced at any age. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff diligently works to help you achieve your goals of a beautiful, healthy smile no matter your stage of life. But, our experience has taught us that early orthodontic care can help prevent serious problems from developing and often reduces the overall duration of treatment time. That’s why our office recommends a thorough evaluation by Dr. Brian Ward when your child has reached the age of seven, or when you notice problems with their teeth or bite.

Early Intervention

While some children may not be ready for orthodontic treatment at age seven, an evaluation by an experienced Twin Falls and Magic Valley orthodontist like Dr. Ward allows our office to carefully monitor the mouth’s growth and development to determine the best time to begin treatment. Your child may benefit from early intervention treatment if any of the following are present:

  • Difficulty chewing
  • Thumb sucking
  • Crowded teeth
  • Early or late loss of teeth
  • Mouth breathing
  • Misplaced teeth
  • Grinding or clenching
  • Misaligned jaw
  • Unbalanced facial appearance
