IF WE WAIT, WILL MY CHILD'S TEETH GET BETTER OVER TIME?
No. If your child has a bite problem that requires interceptive treatment, do not expect it to improve with time. Often what occurs is just the opposite – over time many orthodontic problems get worse. For example, a palate expander in about one month’s time can create space for an 8-year-old child with crowded teeth. However, if left untreated, the crowded teeth can encroach upon the other teeth and push them out of alignment. This could result in tooth impaction, tooth extraction or another more severe dental problem.
FRIENDLY OFFICE, DOCTORS AND STAFF
Our office, staff and doctor pride ourselves at being great with children. Dr. DiGiovanni has a very gentle “chair-side” manner and enjoy treating young patients. They have designed an upbeat, fun and interactive office with kids in mind and have hand-picked a specialized staff that love to treat children as well.
In our office, you will find fun contests, games, prizes, video games, TVs to watch your chair, and even refreshments to enjoy during your visit. Our entire staff focuses on making each patient’s experience in our office a positive one -which includes making sure they feel at ease at each appointment.
