Early Orthodontic Treatment


According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should have an initial orthodontic evaluation at age 7. This is recommended because some conditions are much easier to treat if caught early. Early intervention is most common when a child has any of the following issues:

  1. Severe crossbite
  2. Severe overcrowding.
  3. Protruding teeth.
  4. Open bite.
  5. Difficulty chewing and/or biting.

Orthodontic appliances, including braces, palate expander, and headgear, can be successfully used to correct these problems at this stage, thereby increasing the chances of avoiding future surgery. Early intervention aims to create a better environment for permanent teeth as they come in.

If your child is between the ages of seven and eight and needs orthodontic care or your family dentist has directed you to visit the orthodontist, please get in touch with our practice and schedule a complimentary orthodontic evaluation for your child.
