Early Treatment


The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Although treatment may or may not be immediately necessary, this age allows us to spot any problems that will occur in the future while still having enough time to determine an ideal treatment plan and time. In keeping with this recommendation, we highly encourage parents to bring their children in to our Las Vegas office for an initial evaluation around age 7.

During this initial orthodontic evaluation, Dr. Truman will examine the position of the first adu

lt molars, the back bite, and individual tooth positioning - these factors are key in indicating what problems may occur further down the line. By assessing early on, we can more effectively recommend treatments to create a healthier bite and successfully treat any common problems like overbite, open bite, or crowded teeth.
