Our Early Treatment Results
WE CREATE SMILES EARLY
Early treatment is designed to correct issues that can affect the development of the teeth and bones. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic evalation at age 7 to screen for these issues. Schedule your COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION to learn more!

This 8-year-old presented to our office with an open bite caused from thumb sucking. Both the parents and patient had concerns with his teeth. Braces were used to help stop the thumb-sucking habit, correct the open bite, and create an amazing smile!
This 9-year-old patient loves to smile but didn’t like the large space between her front teeth (called a diastema). A quick round of early braces did a great job of closing up the diastema, aligning the teeth, and creating enough space for the rest of her adult teeth to erupt!
This 7-year-old corrected with a posterior crossbite. Posterior crossbites occur when the top jaw is too narrow, causing the upper teeth to be trapped inside of the lower teeth. An expander and braces were used to correct the crossbite and create a healthy and functional bite!
This 7-year-old patient came in to our office with severe crowding. Phase 1 braces were recommended to create room for her adult teeth to erupt. Treatment was very quick and efficient, and the patient couldn’t be happier!
