At Helm Orthodontics, we believe early detection offers peace of mind. The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that children see an orthodontist as early as age seven because many developing orthodontic problems can be detected at a young age.
Dr. Nathan Helm’s approach to early orthodontic treatment is simple and conservative. He recognizes that early treatment can have profound benefits for some children, but not every child needs it. Dr. Helm recommends early treatment when the bite is causing permanent damage to the teeth or gum tissue, space is needed for permanent teeth to come in properly, or when improvement to the smile is desired or needed for healthy psychosocial development.
When early treatment is not necessary, your child will become a member of the Helm Ortho Kids Club, which allows Dr. Helm to regularly monitor his or her jaw growth and development of the permanent teeth to keep you informed of any future treatment needs. Our parents appreciate the peace of mind these check-up appointments bring, and best of all, they are free!
We invite you to contact our office in Denver, Colorado at 303.371.0371 to set up a consultation with Dr. Nathan Helm to evaluate if early orthodontic treatment would benefit your child. We are committed to helping your child enjoy a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
