Types of Orthodontic Conditions

Types of Orthodontic IssuesAlthough many orthodontic malocclusion predictors are present as early as age 2, orthodontic problems of the developing permanent teeth, bite, and growing face are first formally evaluated around age 7, once the adult teeth begin to erupt.  Whether your child is on a growth path for an ideal bite and smile or needs early, interceptive care to steer growth, Dr. Galligan is able to evaluate your child’s orthodontic condition at the earliest stages and at routine intervals.  At Galligan Family Dentistry, our unique practice offerings of pediatric and orthodontic care allows us to assess and guide your child at the earliest and most ideal stages of growth and development.
