Early Orthodontics for Kids
It’s a great idea to get checked out early
Beginning orthodontic correction early can have significant benefits for your child. An orthodontic assessment for children as young as 7 years old can improve the chances of avoiding full orthodontic treatment later on. As one of Auckland’s most trusted orthodontics providers, we recommend early assessment of children’s teeth straightening options.
At McIntosh Dental we assess breathing patterns in children as young as 5 years old, which can have a lasting effect on the shape of your child’s jaw. Mouth breathers can develop significant issues as their jaw and teeth grow. We often see children at 7 or 8 years old for their first orthodontic assessment and many of these children are treated early to save major orthodontic procedures in later years.
As experienced orthodontic experts, we work with people of all ages to create amazing smiles. We have a full range of orthodontic options available, embracing the latest technology and trends including metal, clear, coloured and invisible braces.
We understand that the cost of braces for kids can be difficult to manage, which is why we offer OrthoPlan. OrthoPlan is an orthodontic payment plan that allows you to spread the cost of your child’s orthodontics over the course of their treatment.
