If you were planning on waiting until your child reached adolescence before having him or her evaluated for orthodontic treatment, we at Sindhi-Biggs Hansen Orthodontics would like to let you know about the benefits of coming in earlier than that. Beginning at age 7, your child can get a head start on more perfectly aligned teeth, which will either eliminate the need for wearing braces as a teenager, or make treatment at that time simpler, less time consuming, and typically less costly.
Problems and difficulties with proper teeth positioning and jaw alignment in children do not go away on their own. They need our orthodontics for kids in Indianapolis. Being proactive is a wise idea, even if there is no obvious sign that your child might need braces right now. Some concerns could be in their early stages, and by taking advantage of our orthodontics for kids in Indianapolis, those issues might never reach a point where they are causing discomfort or complications that are harder to address and manage. If, however, your child is exhibiting any of the following symptoms, you should not wait to have an evaluation done. The indications to watch out for are finger or thumb sucking, teeth crowding, chewing difficulties, mouth breathing, misplaced teeth, baby teeth that are lost too soon or have stayed in too long, blocked out teeth, jaws and teeth out of proportion with the face, shifting jaws, and clicking or other sounds as the jaws move. You can depend on our pediatric orthodontist to determine the most appropriate and effective method of treatment based on your child’s unique needs.
There’s no reason to delay bringing your child in. You’ll either find out that you have no need to take further action right now, or you will have the peace of mind that she or he will be helped by our orthodontics for kids in Indianapolis in a timely manner. Call us right now.
