Wellness Checks begin

At Age Seven

Routine wellness checks are essential for children at seven years of age, as an unaddressed misaligned bite can lead to long-term oral health issues, such as difficulty with chewing and speaking. Fortunately, routine complimentary wellness exams from Team Orthodontics can monitor your child’s growth and development to prevent serious dental issues. With the help of Team Orthodontics in Ahwatukee & Gilbert, parents can have peace of mind when it comes to the health of their child.

Orthodontic treatment at an early age is only done when deemed necessary for the dental development of the child by an orthodontic specialist. If deemed necessary, preventative orthodontic treatment can help your child correct any/all of the following issues: 

  • Correctly aligned teeth and jaws which can help with chewing and speaking.
  • Improved oral hygiene due to better access to all areas of the mouth. 
  • Enhanced confidence as an improved smile can boost self-esteem.
  • Reduced risk of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay.
