EARLY ORTHODONTICS

 

Q. how old is too old for orthodontics? how young is too young?

A. Our youngest patient is 5 years old and our oldest is over 80. Age is not an obstacle! 

 

Q. when should my child first be evaluated for treatment?

A.  7 years old. There is no fee for this service! All exams are complimentary.

 

Q. why such an early age?

A. Dr. Cooke does a few things at this appointment:

  • She identifies if the jaw is growing properly.

  • She determines if there are too many or too few teeth.

  • She takes a 3D image that can identify sleep-disordered breathing.

 

Q. How often does a child need early orthodontics?

A. For about 1 in 5 children, early treatment is advised. Most of the time, Dr. Cooke will determine that everything looks good and your child should begin treatment around 12-13 years old.

 

Q. why does dr. cooke perform exams every 6-12 months?

A.        The teeth and jaw are constantly growing and shifting. Most exams are a year apart to make sure everything is growing in a healthy and ideal way. Dr. Cooke is able to guide the eruption of adult teeth when needed with well-timed interventions that make orthodontics easier for children.
