Child Orthodontic Treatment
Early orthodontic treatment can help reduce the chances of needing more complicated orthodontic treatment later. It is recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists that children should have an orthodontic evaluation no later than 7 years old.
The benefit to you is:
- prevent overcrowding by creating room for teeth that have not erupted
- create facial symmetry by guiding jaw growth
- reduce the need for teeth removal
- reduce future treatment time with braces
Teen Orthodontic Treatment
Between the ages of 11 and 15 is the most common time for orthodontic treatment, and for good reasons. By 12, most if not all of the permanent teeth have erupted and are in place. That means crooked teeth, gaps and bad bites can easily be detected. These problems will hardly ever correct themselves, so this is when most parents decide it is time to seek orthodontic treatment.
