Stubbs Orthodontics dedicated to helping all patients achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. To ensure that our patients receive the best treatment possible, Orthodontist, Dr. Casi B. Stubbs stays current with the latest trends in the market. At Stubbs Orthodontics, we understand that parents hope to have optimal oral health for their kids, and we are committed to providing them with the best treatment options. We know that there is uncertainty and fear when it comes to dental procedures, and having to undergo orthodontic treatment of any kind, at any age can be quite nerve racking, especially for children. Consequently, we endeavor to maintain a welcoming atmosphere to ensure our patients feel safe and comfortable, no matter their age.
When Kids get Braces?
Beginning orthodontic treatment at an early age can be helpful. It can create more than just a brand new smile; it can help to transform a person’s facial features and appearance. Beyond that, it is important to note that bad teeth and a crooked smile can impact a person’s perception of themselves in a negative way. But straight healthy teeth and a beautiful smile can boost one’s self-esteem. Stubbs Orthodontics can help treat common orthodontic problems such as underbites, overbites, open bites, spacing, crowding and more. American Association of Orthodontics recommends that the best time to evaluate your child for orthodontic care should be no later than the age of seven. They advise that by this age, some adult teeth would have erupted, and common orthodontic problems can be detected and treated.
Dr. Stubbs can perform regular and proper orthodontic screening in case any problems occur they can be detected and addressed immediately. Beyond the emotional aspect, early orthodontic treatment has other benefits for the long run as well; these include shorter treatment time, lower treatment costs, and reduced probability of mouth trauma occurring, the creation of facial symmetry, and more. Not everybody needs orthodontic treatment by age seven but by seeing your orthodontist early, you can rest assured you are ensuring the best possible orthodontic result for your child. With our no cost initial consultation there is no risk associated getting your child’s first orthodontic exam by age 7.
