The Best Team to Rely On for Children’s Orthodontics in La Porte, IN

When you think about children’s orthodontics, your mind might immediately go to braces. However, that’s not necessarily the case. Early orthodontics is about seeing your child up for a lifetime of good oral health, which can be accomplished by achieving proper alignment and symmetry of their smile, jaw, and face. At Fryar Orthodontics, we’re happy to work with patients to not only achieve their best smile through orthodontic treatment but also help guide the growth and development of their jaw and teeth.

When Is the Right Age to Consider a Visit for Children’s Orthodontics?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that you bring your child in for their initial orthodontic evaluation by age seven, which is when their adult teeth are erupting. When you adhere to this recommendation and bring your child to Fryar Orthodontics for an appointment, it can help us employ early interceptive orthodontic treatment. What this means is that because the permanent teeth haven’t fully come in, we’re able to evaluate and address any potential problems in an early stage rather than after the fact.

Our experienced professionals can evaluate your child’s teeth and identify any issues like overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. With this evaluation, we’ll be able to tell you whether your child will benefit from early orthodontic treatment.

When You Should Schedule a Children’s Orthodontic Assessment for Your Child

In some cases, early treatment isn’t necessary. But if you notice any of the following conditions with your child’s teeth, you’d be wise to schedule a screening with the orthodontist:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or biting food
  • Early loss of baby teeth
  • Mouth breathing
  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Jaws that pop when opening and closing
  • Misaligned teeth that close abnormally or without touching
  • Jaws and teeth that are not in proportion to the rest of the face

Your Top-Rated & New Favorite Orthodontist in La Porte & Michigan City, IN...

Life savior! We were two hours away from our orthodontist and my daughter’s new bracket injured her tongue. My doctor did a subpar job. Dr. Fryar was so kind to see her between his patients! He made an adjustment and it made it better. He offered to see her again if the problem didn’t go away completely. There was no charge for it at all. All of the staff were so professional! What a pity we are not patients here. Dr. Fryar and his office staff are so much better than at the office we are going to in chicago! Day And Night! Don’t even think twice - you have to come here and nowhere else.

I was totally impressed with just our first visit. Dr. Fryar was laid back, polite, and very genuine. His staff was friendly and helpful. They made sure to talk to my son "the patient" making sure he was comfortable and asking him if he had any questions. This whole process, so far with getting other appointments needed has been made easier due to the wonderful ladies who work there. I walked away feeling like we had a game plan with great support. I know my child is in good hands.

Three of our children have benefited from Dr. Fryar’s services. Two children each getting two set’s. A wonderful experience all around each time. All the staff are great to work with and it’s nice knowing you can trust Dr. Fryar’s opinion.
