Experienced Orthodontist for Fair Oaks & Citrus Heights Orthodontics, Early Treatment & Children’s Braces

See Why Local Dentists Recommend DeLurgio & Blom Orthodontics for Children

citrus heights orthodontics for kidsAs an orthodontic specialist offering Fair Oaks and Citrus Heights orthodontics for children, Dr. DeLurgio realizes the countless benefits that can come when a child visits the orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why our team at DeLurgio & Blom Orthodontics follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7.

Early evaluation is not the same thing as early treatment!

When your child sees Dr. DeLurgio, she will simply take that opportunity to examine your child’s bite and jaw alignment. This allows Dr. DeLurgio to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted. Most parents who bring their child to our Citrus Heights orthodontic office for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all.

How Can You Tell If Your Child Needs Early Orthodontic Treatment?

Ultimately, only a trained orthodontic specialist can tell for sure if your child would benefit from early treatment, since many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. However, if you observe any of the following signs in your child, then we strongly recommend that you bring your child to see Dr. DeLurgio for an evaluation.

Signs That Your Child May Need Early Treatment

  • Difficult chewing and/or biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Speech impediments
  • Protruding teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Thumb-sucking or finger-sucking past age 3

How Can Your Child Benefit From Early Treatment?

In the cases where Dr. DeLurgio does recommend preventative orthodontics, this early treatment can bring about numerous benefits for a child, including…

  • Eliminating the need for adult tooth extractions
  • Reducing or eliminating the need for braces later
  • Reducing or eliminating the need for jaw surgery
  • Improving overall facial development

Even when early orthodontic prevention is not necessary or recommended, early evaluation still allows Dr. DeLurgio to monitor your child’s growth patterns and focus on the ideal time to employ braces or orthodontics after all their teeth have erupted.

"I wasn’t very excited when I found out I had to get braces for what was estimated to be two years. Thankfully Dr. Delurgio introduced me to the Acceledent device which saved me an entire year. My braces are off earlier than I expected and my teeth and bite are perfect. I couldn’t be happier with the results."*
- Catie M. 5 star
"My younger son's braces were off earlier than expected and he loved the result of how his teeth were aligned. It's really worth to see these Drs Blom and Delurgio. They're so nice they made my son comfortable and really professional including their staff. Sadly, Dr Blom already retired from his practice but with Dr Delurgio now in-charge I'm so confident with her that my other son who just started his braces late last year is getting improvement with his teeth."*
