Did you know that by the age of seven, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children have an orthodontic evaluation?
Early consultations with Gavri Orthodontics can help your child avoid more complex and costly treatments later in life, and in some cases, can even eliminate the need for braces. Fulshear Orthodontist, Dr. Aaron Gavri is always looking out for your child’s best interests. Your child will be placed in the observation program if they are not considered to be at the appropriate developmental stage to begin treatment. As a result, until it is determined that your child is ready to begin treatment, their development will be monitored through regular scheduled visits.
So why are they being brought in for a consultation at such a young age?
A beautiful, healthy smile can improve your child’s self-image and confidence while also ensuring their long-term dental and overall health.
What would that initial consultation appointment entail?
We understand. Coming to the Orthodontist is not something that everyone enjoys. However, we guarantee that your first visit with Dr. Gavri will be thrilling!
When you and your child come for your first visit, you will be greeted by one of our warm and friendly team members. Getting to know our space is important for your child to feel comfortable, and our team members are always available to answer any questions you or your child might have. During your consultation with Dr. Gavri, digital x-rays and pictures will be taken of your child’s teeth and jaws, followed by a detailed examination. We use the digital x-rays along with his or her visual exam findings to develop a treatment plan tailored to your child’s needs.
Once a treatment plan is decided upon, our team will answer any questions that you may have and review financing options to find a solution that fits your budget. Once all the details are finalized, treatment can begin – even on the same day – and your child will be on their way to having a happy, healthy smile.
By arranging an early consultation with the specialists at Gavri Orthodontics, your child will be able to:
- Correct harmful oral habits like thumb-sucking
- Prevent further wear or injury to teeth and jaw joints by moving the teeth and jaws to their optimal positions
- Possibly prevent the need for braces and even oral surgery through early intervention in detrimental bite or alignment patterns
- Increase the impact of final treatment results and their stability
- Improve the ease of breathing
- Discourage speech impediments
We’d love to meet you and your child!
