Dr. Jensen, our Dartmouth kids orthodontist, has over 40 years of experience as an orthodontist. Our practice offers clear aligners and retainers, transparent and colored braces as well as current treatment for jaw alignment problems and TMJ therapy. Dr. Jensen is highly-trained in all aspects of orthodontics, including orthodontics for kids, adolescents, and adults.
At Jensen Orthodontics Inc. we offer early orthodontics treatment for children starting around age eight. Our Dartmouth kids orthodontist recommends that your child be evaluated by age seven to see if he or she needs early orthodontic treatment. Often times, when an orthodontic problem is found early, corrective action can be taken that will let you avoid more difficult and expensive treatment later on. Most orthodontic treatment usually happens between the ages of ten and twelve, or after an adult is twenty-one years of age. If your child is deemed to have a bad bite, asymmetric jaw growth, jaw joint malfunction or difficulty chewing, he or she may well benefit from early orthodontic treatment. If early treatment is recommended, the child will usually benefit right away from early treatment. If time is allowed to progress, there may be other problems occurring, such as extractions of permanent teeth or jaw surgery that could have been avoided. While it used to be believed that orthodontic work should begin at a later age that is definitely no longer the case. It is now considered wise to take preventive action whenever possible. When it comes to orthodontics, it is now believed that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you would like to have your child meet with our Dartmouth kids orthodontist for an evaluation, call Jensen Orthodontics Inc. today for an appointment.
