Taking your child to Milestone Orthodontics for an evaluation means that you may be able to identify problems with the jaw and teeth early when they are still easy to treat. Early treatment often equals a more simplified treatment plan, which is beneficial to both children and their parents. Often, earlier treatment can cost less to correct a problem than delayed treatment.
If a problem is detected, Dr. Mathew Milestone and his team will discuss corrective options and provide a recommended treatment schedule. Depending on your child’s orthodontic needs, he or she may benefit from:
•Palatial Spacers – Helpful for correcting a crossbite by expanding the width of the upper jaw.
•Fixed Functional Appliance – Helpful for correcting severe upper tooth protrusion.
•Headgear – Helpful for guiding healthy growth of new teeth and the jaw. Headgear is removable, but usually must be worn at least 10 hours per day.
