About Early Orthodontics:
Sometimes Orthodontics is necessary at an early age and we are here to help you with your children’s early orthodontic care here in San Diego.
Periodic evaluation is necessary to gauge the development of your child’s teeth. Panoramic X-rays should be taken at age 6 to determine the development of permanent teeth underneath the primary teeth. This examination allows the Pediatric Specialist to determine whether the development is within ‘Normal Limits’.
Pediatric evaluation determines if interceptive orthodontics are needed.
