Before your child’s permanent teeth have erupted, we encourage you to visit our office for a guided eruption consultation. In some cases, permanent teeth may be coming in too crowded or misaligned. If this is the case, your child may be a good candidate for guided eruption preventative orthodontics. Through careful planning and orthodontic work, Dr. Lund, Dr. Markham, and our team will guide the eruption of problematic teeth in order to create a beautiful, balanced smile. Guided eruption techniques can help prevent costly and painful orthodontic work in the future, and can also improve a child’s overall dental health.
Typically, we begin the eruption guidance process when a child is around six years of age. It is important to start the treatment early enough in the process, otherwise it may be too late to effectively guide the eruption. The guiding process is carried out through a variety of methods that our dentist deems fit, including wearing a special appliance at night.
