Celebrate Dad: $800 Off Ortho Treatment

Orthodontics for Kids

The Adventure Club

A complimentary guidance program to evaluate your child's orthodontic needs at or before the age of 7.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a “wellness check” be done at the age of 7. This wellness check is done by our orthodontists and the information provided is different than a typical dental visit. This is a guidance program that monitors dental crowding/tooth eruption, jaw growth and airway development.

This evaluation is done FREE of charge at Adventure Orthodontics and its purpose is to provide parents/guardians with information on whether treatment is necessary and at what age treatment is recommended. In certain instances, Drs. McCord and McCoy may recommend early treatment or what is often called “Phase I treatment.”

The main goal of early treatment is to correct an orthodontic issue that, if left untreated, could result in future problems like crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, jaw problems, issues with your child’s gums and other orthodontic problems that may require more invasive procedures. Phase I treatment is not typically done for cosmetic reasons.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends early treatment may be needed in certain instances to:

  • Allow more space for crowded teeth, thus preventing the need for the extraction of child’s permanent teeth later in life
  • Regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches
  • Correct thumb-sucking and help improve minor speech problems
  • Correct and guide the growth of the jaw

Our dental team encourages you to bring your child for an orthodontic exam at or before the age of 7, especially if you notice issues such as crowding or misalignment in the front teeth, thumb or finger sucking, mouth breathing, or the early or late loss of teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

A child’s bones are still growing, making them more responsive to treatment. In addition, early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing later on. Problems with a baby tooth /teeth can indicate more serious problems in the future, which your orthodontist can find solutions early on.
