As a well-regarded local, board-certified orthodontist in Gibsonton, FL, Dr. Matt Ahrens of SouthShore Orthodontics, encourages parents to consider the value of early orthodontics for their children. Though most children do not go to an orthodontist until later in their pediatric dentistry journey, Dr. Ahrens urges moms and dads to visit an orthodontist sooner rather than when problems have already worsened or become severe.
Many parents do not focus on visiting an orthodontist in Gibsonton, FL for a consultation until their children are in late preteen or teen years. Dr. Ahrens recommends making orthodontia part of a holistic pediatric dentistry plan due to its practicality and positive outcomes.
The notion of early orthodontics has risen in popularity as a proven method of both intervention and prevention. A highly trained orthodontist like Dr. Ahrens can follow a child’s dental history throughout the years, intervening with proper solutions to fix issues at their beginning stages rather than when the child is much older. This may shorten the course of orthodontics later in some cases. It can also help children avoid feeling a lack of confidence because of tooth crowding, gaps and alignment issues.
Young people who require orthodontia post-consultation have a number of options when they become a patient of Dr. Ahrens. His practice provides some of the latest technologies in orthodontics, including clear braces and other alternatives. Because Dr. Ahrens is a specialist in his field, he has the expertise to help families make wise decisions when it comes to the right appliances and protocols.
