Dr. Michael E. Kun takes an epigenetic approach to providing orthodontic treatment for children. Children have growth centers in the face and jaws that are active and can be stimulated to produce highly beneficial results. For this reason, we prefer to provide your child’s initial orthodontic assessment when they are about 6 years old. At this stage of life, we will be able to determine if deficient growth tendencies or other problems are present and provide growth guidance orthopedics to correct the problem before it can become damaging. To schedule your child’s appointment with our dentist and learn more about epigenetic orthodontic treatment in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, call our office today at 610-709-6774.
The Importance of Early Treatment
While jaw remodeling can be accomplished at any age. The most ideal time to harness and guide jaw growth is in childhood. When treatment is provided at an earlier age it provide dramatic benefits to the face and airway, resulting in a more balanced appearance, a healthier jaw and airway, and better oral health and function. This leads to a higher quality of life and better overall health in the future.
