Are you curious about Early Interceptive Orthodontics?
As a parent, from the moment you hold your children for the very first time, you strive to provide them with limitless opportunities of optimal health and well being. As a mother herself, Dr. Bina Park understands this first hand and offers the best preventative care and treatment options in New York City with Early Interceptive Orthodontics. Among the many services provided by orthodontists today, Early Interceptive Orthodontics can establish a healthy foundation of oral health for your child as well as treat any issues before they become a more serious health risk.
How early should you consider an early interceptive evaluation for your child?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an initial orthodontic evaluation occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7 – this can be as early as age 2. During these formidable years where harmful habits like finger or thumb sucking are developed, it’s vital to monitor and treat conditions such as underdeveloped dental arches, the premature loss of primary teeth, severely crooked or crowded teeth, underbites and overbites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the TMJ (jaw joint).
What if your child doesn’t need treatment right now?
Beginning early evaluations can lead to necessary interceptive treatment. Yet, even when there is no problem detected an orthodontist like Dr. Park can use an early interceptive evaluation to guide growth and development. This guidance and preventative care can eliminate serious long-term problems saving you plenty of time and unnecessary expenses.
