Early Orthodontic Treatment
Sometimes early orthodontic treatment can shorten the overall treatment time, and help a child's bite to grow in correctly. By age 7, the first adult molars appear, establishing the bite. This is the best time for Dr. Alborzi to determine what treatment is needed, if any.
With over 20 years of experience and a gentle touch, Dr. Alborzi will examine your child's teeth, and design the best treatment plan for a lifetime of straight and beautiful smiles.

Why should my child have an early orthodontic evaluation?
When orthodontic problems are discovered in children, intervention by Dr. Alborzi can begin early enough to prevent serious problems later. Early detection can also decrease the expense and the time needed for treatment.
Some direct benefits of early orthodontic intervention are:
- Creating room for crowded teeth
- Creating facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth
- Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
- Reducing the need for tooth removal
- Reducing treatment time with braces
Even if immediate treatment isn't needed, early evaluation helps Dr. Alborzi determine what will be needed in the future and the ideal time to start. Dr. Alborzi has helped thousands of young patients improve their smiles. She looks forward to meeting you and your child.
