When To Seek Treatment
Our dental professionals recommend that you have your child evaluated for orthodontics close to the age of seven. Occasionally, our team may suggest the evaluation be performed earlier. A thorough assessment can be provided so that you understand how the teeth, jaw, and gums are forming so we can customize an orthodontic treatment plan. Scientific research has shown that dental development is most active before the teen years between the ages of 7 and 11. A consultation with an orthodontic professional early on allows you to plan for developing needs and understand what could be an issue before it is time to get an orthodontic treatment. Even though some patients will not need braces at a young age, for some, early intervention may be needed to control overcrowding. We may perform an extraction of a few permanent teeth to make room for ideal alignment. Getting braces at a younger age also helps improve a misaligned bite and completes most of the orthodontic work allows patients to get the treatment out of the way early.
Reasons for Orthodontics
Depending on the patient, there are several reasons why orthodontic treatment is an oral health necessity or wanted. Some common reasons why patients get an orthodontic treatment include overcrowded or overlapping teeth, large spaces between teeth, an overbite or underbite, upper dental protrusion (buck teeth), and a cross bite. A treatment with braces or Invisalign can create a more symmetrical smile. At your consultation, we’ll be able to diagnose the exact issue and explain which orthodontic treatments will improve your smile.
