PRESS RELEASE: Phoenix, AZ, 13-DEC-2012 – Dunn Orthodontics and Phoenix orthodontist, Dr. Matthew Dunn DDS, are pleased to announce that the clinic provides comprehensive services for youngsters as well as adults. While orthodontics procedures are not unusual during teen years, in younger children it may be less common. Some studies indicate that an orthodontic assessment as soon as the first permanent teeth erupt is a helpful practice.

When pediatric orthodontic services are offered early, the children are less likely to develop problems with poor bite. This therapy means that overcrowded teeth can be extracted so that as the permanent teeth come in, they will be uncrowded and will be straight.

Speaking in a recent interview, Dr. Dunn explained, “We are parents of three children and know how important it is to ensure their well-being. We encourage parents to bring children in at approximately age 7. We can check for bite problems that are present at this age. If they are left unattended, the issues may be hard to correct later.”

He continues, “Problems which are not corrected early can cause irreparable damage to the adult teeth. In addition to throwing off the bite pattern, a crooked tooth may reduce the ability to properly clean the teeth. Poor cleaning can create gum disease, speech disorders and cavities.”

Working with young children requires a different approach than working with adults. The children must be cared for in a way that they are not frightened and panicky. Developing a relationship with a young patient that is pleasant and enjoyable is essential.
