Wise are they who get their children in to an orthodontist as soon as possible. Promoting good oral health from an early age can help prevent a good deal of the problems that may come along later in life. Unique Orthodontics offers something known as the Growth Guidance Program for certain patients to teach young children good oral health habits and to help identify those children who may have oral health issues early on in life. The sooner that these issues are noticed, the sooner that someone can begin to take action to correct them. We are excited to offer this program to our young patients and invite you to learn the ways in which it can help.
At Unique Orthodontics, we have our professionals evaluate young patients every six to twelve months after they join our Growth Guidance Program. This gives us the best hope for identifying any underlying problems that may be lying just beneath the surface of a child’s oral health issues.
There are a number of conditions that a child may exhibit related to their oral health that are worth taking a look at. The premature loss of baby teeth, cavities, issues with speech, and even crowded front teeth are all signs that something may be wrong. Speech impediments, over- or underbites, mouth breathing, and inadequate space for permanent teeth are also common indicators. These are things that may be difficult to notice as you go about your daily routine. However, an orthodontist can spot these issues in no time. Corrective actions can then be taken to try to help with these issues.
Adults who have to go through extensive orthodontic procedures are often ones who did not take care of these issues earlier in life. This is why you should want to do everything within your power to make sure that your child gets ahead of the curve. You can provide them with the best preventative treatment when you get them involved in our Growth Guidance Program.

At our offices in Clovis, Fresno, Madera, and Tulare, we would love to explain the details of this program, address any questions or concerns you may have, and get your child on the road to oral health.
