Although not all children need early orthodontic treatment, for orthodontists, children between the ages of 7-10 are quite suitable for early orthodontics. By evaluating your child's teeth and jaw arrangement, they can decide whether and when to conduct early corrective intervention. Orthodontists are rigorously trained to discover children's dental problems when they are young. Even if these problems are minor, they can begin to correct them to avoid potential long-term problems.
What are the benefits of early orthodontic treatment?
Early orthodontic treatment of teeth is often referred to as "stage one" because when your child grows up, further treatment is usually required. Early treatment can solve some of the more serious problems related to occlusion.
Wearing appropriate early orthodontic appliances can help children leave room in the mouth and allow permanent teeth to enter the correct growth position. Early treatment also helps prevent a series of physical and psychological problems caused by improper incisor position.
