Early Treatment in San Jose, CA

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that most children should have an orthodontic screening by age 7. This allows Dr. Cadena to determine if orthodontic treatment will be required and the best time for the patient to be treated. Many of the dentists in our community have been trained to identify orthodontic problems early, and may refer you to our office earlier than age seven.

Why are children being evaluated at such an early age?

Early treatment does not necessarily benefit all children. Certain types of orthodontic problems can be more easily and efficiently corrected in the teen years when all the permanent teeth have erupted. Some skeletal orthodontic problems should not be addressed until growth is more advanced or completed. The doctors develop a plan for treatment based on each individual child’s needs. If the doctor decides the patient is not ready for treatment, they are placed on our orthodontic supervisory program.

What is the cost of treatment?

During the first visit, you will meet with our Treatment Coordinator and discuss treatment costs and payment options during this visit. We will work with you to develop a financial plan to fit your budget.
