Early Treatment in La Porte, IN, and Michigan City, IN
Fryar Orthodontics and The American Association of Orthodontists realize the countless benefits of children visiting an orthodontist in the earlier stages of their life. This is why it is recommended that your child’s first visit to the orthodontist be as early as age seven. Early treatment in La Porte, IN, and Michigan City, IN, allows Dr. Fryar to monitor your child’s growth patterns and focus on the proper time to employ braces or orthodontics.

How Will Your Child Benefit?
Receiving early treatment as a child can prevent the need for braces and orthodontics as an adult, reducing the chances of needing surgery to correct common conditions. Most parents who bring their child to our orthodontic offices for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all. Dr. Fryar firmly believes that early treatment should only be used when it is truly essential, and he will not recommend braces for a child when simpler treatment can produce the same results.
