Younger Children don't always need treatment, but early observation and routine monitoring can help protect your child's smile as it develops. Dr. Azizi may recommend an early phase of Braces, or a noninvasive appliance Treatment, Phase I Treatment, to assist in the growth and development of your child's Teeth & Jaws.
We all want to protect our children's precious smiles. Even if your children still have some of their baby teeth left, it is not too early for them to visit the orthodontist. Along with the American Association of Orthodontist, we recommend children receive their first Orthodontic screening by age 7. Early Screenings allow us to recognize potential issues and address them before they become a problem.
