Common Questions About Preventive Orthodontics

What is preventive orthodontics?

Preventive orthodontics is early orthodontic treatment for children that can either reduce or eliminate the need for full braces later on. We offer several types of preventive orthodontics, including space maintainers, interceptive orthodontics, and palatal expanders. We’ll examine your child and recommend any treatment we believe would benefit them.

How much does preventive orthodontics cost?

As with other kinds of orthodontics, the cost depends on the issues that need to be addressed and the solutions you choose to do so. When we examine your child, we will create a recommended treatment plan. We will walk you through all aspects of the plan, including cost. We will also review your possible payment options, including third-party financing.

Who needs preventive orthodontics?

We will keep a close eye on your child’s dental development during their exams. Your dentist can often determine if your child would benefit from preventive orthodontics by the age of 6 or 7. A simple treatment like a space maintainer is often enough to ensure that teeth are able to erupt normally, without crowding or other issues that can lead to an improperly aligned bite.
