Early Care

Launching Bright Smiles with Early Orthodontic Care

At Chartrand Orthodontics in Omaha, Nebraska, we champion early orthodontic evaluations and treatments to ensure your child’s smile is on the right path from the start. Recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists® at age 7, early assessments can lead to more effective treatments with less time and expense. Discover how our early care approach can make a big difference in your child’s dental health and well-being.

Foundations of Early Orthodontic Evaluation

By age 7, when the first adult molars appear, it’s the perfect time for an orthodontic evaluation. Dr. Igel and Dr. Chartrand assess how teeth and jaws align, identifying potential issues early. Early detection of malocclusions can prevent more complex problems, ensuring a healthier smile that’s easier to clean and less prone to injury.

Benefits of Early Orthodontic Treatment

Early treatment, or Phase 1 orthodontics, is not just about straightening teeth; it’s about setting the stage for healthy jaw development and preventing future dental issues. Our approach can address crowded teeth, bite discrepancies, and airway obstructions, promoting better oral health, speech, and breathing.
