Orthodontic Specialist in Clovis, Carlsbad & Hobbs, NM, for Children
Our team at Farnsworth Orthodontics realizes the countless benefits that can come when a child visits an orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why Dr. Farnsworth, our children’s orthodontic specialist in Clovis, Carlsbad, and Hobbs, NM, follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7.
Early Evaluation Is Not the Same Thing as Early Treatment
When your child sees Dr. Farnsworth, he will simply take that opportunity to examine their bite and jaw alignment. This allows Dr. Farnsworth to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted.
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. Farnsworth 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.
