Early Treatment


Early treatment

Early treatment occurs when the child still has a mixture of primary and permanent teeth.  The age that early treatment usually commences is between ages seven to ten, though ages can vary due to some patients with early erupting teeth and others with late erupting permanent teeth.  Early treatment typically ranges from 6-18 months.

The advantage of early treatment is that early diagnosis and treatment by Dr mullins may help tooth eruption, guide facial growth, and often prevent more serious problems from occurring. By lessening these problems in early development stages, later orthodontic treatment may be reduced or made easier.
