Orthodontic concerns often begin to become apparent in the early stages of oral development. In many cases, children can begin effective orthodontic treatment fairly early in life, typically by the age of 7, helping to avoid more complex dental health concerns. Silver Springs, MD orthodontist Dr. David Rever offers early intervention and phased treatment plans for childhood orthodontic concerns.
Phased Early Orthodontics
For some children, early orthodontic intervention can avoid the need for full braces or even oral surgery to correct bite problems. Functional orthodontic appliances can be highly effective when used early on in oral development. There are many different options when considering orthodontic appliances. Treatment and the chosen device will be dependent on the needs of the child. Dr. Rever provides comprehensive and personalized treatment planning for early orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Rever is a Silver Springs, MD family dentist that has years of experience and training in helping patients of all ages. Our dentist office provides a full range of dental services from general dentistry to orthodontic treatment planning. Early intervention helps prevent further damage to the teeth and jaw.
