New Tampa & Wesley Chapel Orthodontics
“Some orthodontic problems can correct themselves through normal growth and development; others cannot. Knowing the difference is critical.” -Dr. Gerard Perret
Young faces are in transition. What looks to be a potential orthodontic emergency might well be fixed naturally over the course of normal growth and development. Many times there are no noticeable signs to the untrained eye that severe problems exist. Parents living in the New Tampa and Wesley Chapel areas trust Dr. Perret to determine whether their child needs early orthodontic intervention.
Children first step into Dr. Perret’s New Tampa orthodontist office around the age of seven or eight, unless the family dentist suggests an earlier evaluation. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, this is the right moment to begin talking strategically about occlusion.
