Early Orthodontics in San Antonio, TX

Orthodontic concerns not only arise during the teenage years but can be identified and addressed at a much younger age. Early orthodontics, also known as interceptive orthodontics, is the process of identifying and rectifying orthodontic issues in young children.

Benefits of Early Orthodontics

  • Prevention of Major Issues: By identifying and treating minor issues early, our San Antonio orthodontist and team can prevent them from escalating into major problems in the future.
  • Guided Growth: It allows for proper jaw growth, ensuring alignment and spacing are conducive for the permanent teeth.
  • Fewer Extractions: By addressing spacing issues early on, there is often a reduced need for tooth extractions later.
  • Boosted Confidence: A straight smile at a young age can greatly enhance a child’s self-esteem.
