Kids love the dentist!

At Scuba Smiles we strive to make first visits fun, and we acclimate children for subsequent steps in order to gain acceptance. For infants and toddlers, repeated periodic visual exams reinforce to the child that we are kid-friendly, and their fear is soon overcome, allowing them to sit independently for orthodontics procedures. Many children actually love to come for visits! Call today to start your child on a lifetime of beautiful smiles!

Pre-Orthodontic Screening

Are you concerned about crooked teeth, no room, or a small mouth? A free pre-orthodontic screening during your child’s initial examination will alert you to potential problems. Your child may benefit from interception or early orthodontic treatment to prevent future extraction of permanent teeth!

Dr. Wilkerson is an international lecturer on the subject of early orthodontic treatment. He has published numerous articles on this subject and maintains active membership in several Orthodontic Associations.  

Most parents are concerned with the “need” for braces at a very early age. What should be done early? When is the best time for treatment? How can early treatment be accomplished? Answers to these and other questions are addressed daily by Dr. Wilkerson in his private practice. Identifying potential problems early and intervening early is key. Early treatment provides the opportunity to improve eruption, correct abnormal jaw widths, influence jaw growth in a positive direction, simplify and shorten treatment time for later comprehensive orthodontic treatment, and provide patients and parents with peace of mind. Waiting for full eruption of the permanent dentition, and full expression of a skeletal and/or dental malocclusion is often not the best treatment strategy. It makes sense to correct problems early and to keep oral and facial growth and development on a normal course. Let us be you San Antonio Orthodontics specialists.
