The Benefits of Early Orthodontic Treatment
Early orthodontic treatment is the best way to prevent more serious problems later in life. At this stage, a child’s jaw and face are still growing, so we can achieve results that might not be possible once a child has matured and their jaw bone has hardened and stopped growing. It gives us a chance to guide your child’s teeth into the optimum position, improve aesthetic appearance, correct bad habits such as finger or thumb sucking, and reduce the risk of trauma to protruding teeth.
We can correct jaw growth and fix bite problems, make room for adult teeth, and reduce the need for tooth extractions later. Treating a child early can reduce overall treatment time, alter abnormal growth patterns, prevent extraction of permanent teeth, prevent future dental and orthodontic work, and prevent jaw surgery.
How to Tell if Your Child Needs Early Orthodontic Treatment
Not all children will need early orthodontic treatment, but there are some red flag warning signs that your child is a suitable candidate for braces.
