Preventing Braces In Young Children

Our mission at Face ForWard Orthodontics is to provide patients with a wellness and orthodontic prevention program to maximize children’s growth and development and avoid invasive procedures like extractions, headgear, braces, aligners or surgery. Early intervention can benefit young children, nursing babies and even expectant mothers! Our early treatment approach focuses on children under 5 years old and their jaw growth, oral rest posture, and airway and breathing.

Care Far Beyond Straight Teeth

When it comes to children and early intervention orthodontic treatment, our primary focus is jaw growth and proper facial development. By maximizing your child’s genetic potential to overcome the external forces affecting their development, we can make room for adult teeth, improve breathing and optimize health.

Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee

You may be surprised to know that your teeth are expected to shift and move throughout your lifetime. Without proper oral rest posture and wearing your retainers after treatment consistently (in many cases full time for the first six months, then during sleep for a lifetime), your teeth will tend to move back toward their initial positions.

We understand that orthodontic treatment is a considerable investment. This is why we offer you a Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee for orthodontic treatment. If you ever require orthodontic treatment again, even if the re-treatment is necessary because you didn’t wear your retainers, we will straighten your teeth again for FREE.*

* You will only be responsible for paying for your new retainers, and any lab fees incurred if your treatment was with Aligners.
