Orthodontic Treatment When To Seek Treatment

Our dental professionals recommend that children be evaluated for orthodontics close to seven years old. Occasionally, our team may suggest the evaluation be performed earlier. A complete examination will be provided so that you understand how the jaw, teeth, and gums are developing so we can customize an orthodontic treatment plan. Research has shown that facial development is most active between the ages of 7 and 11. Seeing an orthodontist early on gives you the opportunity to plan for the future and know what could be an issue before it is time to get braces. Although some patients will not need orthodontic treatment at a young age, intervening early may help to avoid problems, like overcrowding. Your dental team may need to extract one or more permanent teeth to make space for proper alignment. Getting braces early also helps improve a misaligned bite and completes most of the orthodontic work, allowing patients to get the treatment out of the way early.

Reasons for Orthodontics

There are lots of reasons why orthodontic treatment is not only necessary but also desired. Some common reasons patients undergo orthodontic treatment include overcrowding of teeth, overlapping teeth, wide spaces, an overbite or underbite, buck teeth (upper dental protrusion), as well as a crossbite. Treatment with braces or Invisalign can create a more symmetrical smile. In your initial consultation, we’ll be able to identify the specific issue and explain the appropriate treatment to align your bite.
