Parents are usually relieved to learn that early orthodontics at Fryar Orthodontics is not about getting braces. Instead, it’s about setting your child up for a lifetime of optimal oral health, which is affected by the proper alignment and symmetry of their smile, jaw, and face. Your child’s early evaluation with our pediatric orthodontist in Michigan City, IN, is not simply for aesthetics but will help guide the growth and development of their jaw and teeth – preventing more serious problems later.

The Recommended Age for Their First Visit

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child’s initial orthodontic evaluation occur by age seven – the time when adult teeth are erupting. Early interceptive orthodontic treatment has proven to be beneficial for your child’s overall oral health. Because a young child’s permanent teeth have not finished erupting, we are able to thoroughly evaluate and address any impending problems at the earliest stage.

Our orthodontist evaluates erupting teeth to detect issues such as a possible overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. We can tell if your child will benefit from early treatment, as many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. Beginning treatment at this optimal time not only ensures the greatest result but also means less time and expense down the road.

Does Your Child Need an Orthodontic Assessment?

It’s possible that treatment at this early stage will not be necessary. However, it is especially important to schedule a screening with our orthodontist if you notice any of the following conditions in your child:

  • Crowded or misplaced teeth
  • Difficulty in 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

The Benefits of Early Treatment

Rushing into obtaining braces for young children may not be necessary, but certain oral health issues can be avoided with early screening and treatment, including:

  • Open bites – when the upper and lower teeth are unable to physically touch each other when the jaws are closed
  • Crossbites – when the two rows of teeth don’t meet correctly. A misaligned bite can cause tooth decay, gum disease, stress on the jaw muscles, headaches, and more.
  • Speech impediments
  • Injury to protruding teeth

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.
