Early Evaluation & Treatment

Early Evaluation
American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.  By this time, your child should have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth. Dr. Johnson will evaluate your child on a yearly basis free of charge to ensure that treatment is started at the right time.

Early Intervention
Early evaluation allows the opportunity for early correction of problems, if needed, and a greater opportunity for more successful outcomes!  If a problem in your child’s bite is detected in the early evaluation, sometimes it is necessary to initiate treatment from a young age.  This makes it easier for Dr. Brad Johnson to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems before they have the chance to become more severe.
