Orthodontist Lafayette, LA

Gonsoulin Dentistry in Lafayette provides orthodontic care to children and teens. The American Association for Orthodontics recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven years old. At every dental examination, your child will be evaluated on whether or not he/she needs to be seen by an orthodontist. Problems such as crowding, space maintenance, tongue thrusting, finger-sucking habits, bad jaw relationship, or bone issues such as narrow or underdeveloped jaws may require early orthodontic treatment. Early orthodontic treatment will give your child a much better chance for natural and normal development. Working with natural growth can prevent problems from becoming worse and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles.
