7Up - Early Treatment
Give your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile!
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.
An early evaluation is free!
Early detection of orthodontic problems does not necessarily mean treatment. When deemed appropriate however, early intervention can minimize the need for more costly and extensive care later.
In addition, alignment of your child’s teeth can enhance self-esteem at an important time in social development.
Feldman Orthodontics is happy to assess your child without charge to determine if they exhibit any sign of malocclusion or other orthodontic issues.
Have your child check their bite!
The check your bite ruler can be used as a guide to determine protrusion of the top front teeth… one of the most common problems in children today. Early detection of extreme protrusion may allow for simple orthopedic (skeletal) correction. Download our brochure and the check your bite ruler.
Excessive protrusion of the top teeth is the most common orthodontic problem.
The upper teeth fit improperly inside the lower teeth.
Crowded teeth resulting in overlapping. A separation of the front teeth when biting down through which the tongue can protrude
Excessive space between the teeth.
Excessive protrusion of the lower jaw and teeth.
Improper alignment of upper and lower midlines and/or chin which can affect proper fit of the bite.
Long term finger/thumb sucking habits or tongue thrusting which are both noted for creating multiple bite issues.
Chronic mouth breathing can interfere with proper development of upper and lower arches.
