To the Weaver Orthodontics Family,

We will be available this week, March 23 to March 27 to see “essential”appointments only as directed by Governor Kemp and our state dental board. They are recommending this type of schedule for the next two to three weeks, so we will be hard at work this week contacting those patients scheduled the week of March 30th to a later date. We are so fortunate that most orthodontic appointments can be rescheduled to a later date without any delay in overall treatment time. I am available at any time with questions or concerns. If after hours, please contact me or one of our staff for further instructions at (912) 264-6890.

All the best,

Dr. Weaver

Early Treatment

Along with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that a child receive their first orthodontic screening by the age 7. By starting treatment early, we are able to recognize potential problems early and correct them before they become more serious. This not only saves you and your child time, but also money. You are welcome to call or visit Weaver Orthodontics to learn if your child could benefit from Early Orthodontic Treatment from Dr. John K. Weaver in Brunswick or Jesup Ga.  

Why age 7?

Early interceptive orthodontic treatment has proven to be beneficial for the overall desired result. Because a young child’s permanent teeth have not finished erupting, we are able to thoroughly evaluate the front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships and address any impending problems at its earliest stage.

Initial Evaluation

Potential problems to address:


Open Bite

Anterior Crossbite

Posterior Crossbite

It is possible that immediate treatment is not necessary at the time or even at all. However, if treatment is indicated, we will create a personalized treatment plan for your child that will prove to be the most beneficial for his/her specific case.


Early orthodontic treatment varies between patients, but may include:
  • removable or fixed appliances that can provide more room for crowded, erupting teeth

  • preserve space for un-erupted teeth

  • create facial symmetry through manipulating jaw growth

  • reduce the possibility of tooth extraction

  • reduce overall treatment time in braces
