Early Intervention for Kids
Traditional orthodontics have always taken a reverse approach to treating children. Examination, diagnosis, and treatment usually begins at a specific age, most commonly around ten years old. However, treatment usually will begin even later into their early-teens. Less invasive treatment should be used at a younger age to guide their facial development rather can correct development that has already displayed problems. Early intervention is always a key factor to avoid lengthy and costly treatment which is similar to treating a cavity early before it develops into a major health and expensive problem. Call us for a consult with Dr. Keri Do at Manoa Dental, and she can evaluate how it will work best for your child.
