Early Facial Growth Guidance in South Lake Tahoe, CA & Surrounding Areas
Quality Treatment that Goes Far Beyond Straightening Teeth
A child’s jaw and facial bones begin to grow shortly after the age of four, resulting in spaces between their baby teeth that allow room when larger, more permanent teeth emerge. However, if a child’s teeth are coming in crooked due to mouth breathing, thumb sucking, teeth grinding, snoring or other underlying cause – affecting the face and jaw development – it’s time for early facial growth guidance in South Lake Tahoe, CA & Surrounding Areas with our Board-Certified orthodontist, Dr. D’Ascoli.
All orthodontists start out as dentists then take an extra 2-3 years for a specialty program for orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While orthodontics is the study of tooth movement, dentofacial orthopedics is all about guiding the growth and development of children’s faces. Dentofacial orthopedics is treatment far beyond straight teeth, and high-quality orthodontic practices, like D’Ascoli Orthodontics, typically integrate both these aspects.
Dentofacial orthopedics usually occurs during Phase I, before adult teeth have emerged. If this is the case, our orthodontist will recommend the best treatment to ensure your child’s jaw grows and develops correctly, and that their jaw bone is aligned.
