    The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an evaluation at the age of 7 at the first sign of orthodontic problems. Sprowls can then evaluate the relationship between the teeth front to back and side to side. Beginning treatment during the optimal time, can help ensure the best result possible with the least amount of time and money spent. By the age of 7, the first molars erupt which establishes the back bite. While Dr. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, the way you chew and clean your teeth, and even your self-esteem. Dr. Early screenings allow for detecting overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. Orthodontic treatment can help improve bad bites (malocclusions) and tooth or jaw misalignment as well as improving the aesthetics of a smile. Sprowls can improve a smile at any age, it’s best to begin treatment before problems become more severe and costly to treat.
