Orthodontic treatments designed for children and teens
Have you noticed that your child has started to develop a dental issue that could require correcting? Because children grow so quickly, the sooner you can have a dental problem inspected by an orthodontist, the better. In fact, Dr. Crotty often recommends that children receive their first orthodontic screening at the age of 8.
Getting ahead of the growth of your child's permanent teeth can not only help to predict how they grow out, but it can help to reduce the overall treatment time spent in braces. Dr. Crotty can use the scanning technology available to him to get a full 3D architecture of all the teeth, allowing him to assess the issue and predict any problems that are developing below the surface.
