Feb 29, 2024 | Airway Alignment, Braces, Invisalign™

In the journey of preparing our children for life, fostering strong oral hygiene habits is paramount to ensure a lifetime of healthy and happy smiles. At aligned. Orthodontics, located in Denver, CO, we understand the significance of early orthodontic care in laying the foundation for optimal dental health.

Your Child’s First Orthodontic Visit: Timing and Expectations

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, it’s recommended to schedule your child’s first orthodontic visit by the age of 7. While this may seem early, it allows our experienced team at aligned. Orthodontics to assess your child’s dental development comprehensively.

During your child’s initial visit to Aligned Orthodontics, located in Denver, CO, you’ll be greeted with a welcoming and comforting atmosphere, ensuring a high-quality experience from the moment you step into our office. Dr. Amanda Vanderstelt will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s smile, facial structure, and airway, utilizing the latest orthodontic technology to identify any potential issues. Using an iTero® scanner, a 3D digital impression of your child’s teeth and bite will be created, along with a 3D low-radiation radiographic image captured by an i-CAT. This thorough assessment focuses on the Three As – Airway, Alignment, and Aesthetics – to tailor a personalized treatment plan that prioritizes your child’s needs and desired outcome.

While most children may not require immediate orthodontic intervention at this age, early evaluation enables us to monitor their dental progress and address any emerging concerns proactively.
