Free Early Prevention Consultation
Dr. Curtis and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that all children see an orthodontist by age 7. An early visit with Dr. Curtis will ensure that your child is on track to have a healthy and beautiful smile, much like “well check ups” with a pediatrician. Good news! At Curtis Orthodontics, we don’t charge for this appointment. This is a free benefit we provide to our patients and our community. Call us today to schedule your free orthodontic consultation
Early treatment allows your orthodontist to:
- Correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw to help the permanent teeth come in straight
- Regulate the width of the upper and lower arches
- Create more space for crowded teeth
- Avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions later in life
- Correct thumb-sucking and help improve minor speech problems
The Best Choice for Your Kids Orthodontic Care
Early intervention helps to avoid unnecessary tooth extractions and possible jaw surgery. We will work closely with your dentist to help your children maintain a healthy smile as they await the proper time to start orthodontic treatment. Whenever possible, Dr. Curtis believes in waiting to move forward with orthodontic treatment when it can be completed in one single phase.
Minimize Orthodontic Treatment
Dr. Curtis’ expertise allows him to avoid two-phase treatment for most of his patients. It’s best if we can monitor your child every year starting at the age of 7 to determine the best time to start orthodontic treatment. These appointments are important so we don’t want cost to stand in the way, that’s why we don’t charge you anything until the day orthodontic treatment begins.
