Orthodontist Schofield WI, Children's First Orthodontic Visit, Dr. Dennis Fehrman
Orthodontist Schofield, WI, Dr. Dennis Fehrman discusses the child's first visit to the orthodontist. The ideal age for a child to visit the orthodontist is by the age of seven (7). Parents are advised that habits have a consequence on appearance, such as thumb sucking and extended use of pacifiers, which has an effect on the facial profile. It is suggested that parents bring in the child prior to the age of seven, if orthodontic problems have been detected. An appointment usually lasts only 20 minutes; an evaluation and observation is necessary before a treatment plan can be implemented. Positive reinforcement is more effective when trying to change a child's habits that may be causing dental trauma or tooth decay. Dental appointments should be maintained for regular cleanings and exams to ensure good oral health, and freedom from gum disease. To obtain further information please visit your local orthodontist.
