Early Treatment


Truman Orthodontics provides the utmost quality in orthodontic care to patients in a pleasant, comfortable environment Dr. Mark and Dr. Zach Truman along with their highly trained teams of orthodontic professionals have a wide range of knowledge, education, and experience to treat a variety of jaw, alignment, and other common orthodontic problems. We use only the most advanced orthodontic techniques and procedures, including clear braces in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV. We strive to offer our early treatment patients a relaxing, stress-free orthodontic treatment to ease any fears they may have.

Along with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age 7. By starting treatment early, we are able to recognize potential problems early and correct them before they become more serious. This not only saves you and your child time, but also money.

Early interceptive orthodontic treatment has proven to be beneficial for the overall desired result. Because a young child’s permanent teeth have not finished erupting, we are able to thoroughly evaluate the front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships and address any impending problems at its earliest stage.

During your child’s initial evaluation we will first determine if there are any problems that need to be addressed, such as potential crowding, open bite, overbite or gummy smiles. It is possible that immediate treatment is not necessary at the time or even at all. However, if treatment is indicated, we will create a personalized treatment plan for your child that will prove to be the most beneficial for his/her specific case.

Early orthodontic treatment varies between patients, but may include removable or fixed appliances that can provide more room for crowded, erupting teeth; preserve space for unerupted teeth; create facial symmetry through manipulating jaw growth; reduce the possibility of tooth extraction; and reduce overall treatment time in braces.


We are delighted to answer any questions you may have before, during, or after your visit with us.
