Straight A Orthodontics offers early treatment orthodontic services to the local residents of Greensboro, NC who want to make sure their child has all the advantages of a perfect smile.
Though orthodontic treatment can begin at any age, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the optimal time to detect problems is no later than age seven. While treatment at this age might not be necessary, regular examinations can help us target the most advantageous time to begin treatment, ensuring both the best results and the least amount of time and expense.
By getting orthodontic evaluations early enough in life, you can assure that any issues potentially affecting your child are taken care of right from the beginning. Even when treatment isn’t necessary, having Straight A Orthodontics monitor your child’s dental development ensures that any necessary treatment begins at the right point in time, thus making the treatment that much more effective and less costly.

During this time, Dr. A can evaluate your child’s front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships to identify potential problems, such as overbites, open bites, crowding, cross bites, underbites and more.
