Early Treatment

Early Orthodontic

Many parents ask, when should my child first visit an orthodontist? Commonly, children visit the orthodontist for the first time when their general or pediatric dentist identifies a developing dental or jaw problem and recommends an orthodontic evaluation. In general, it is recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists that a child have their first visit to an orthodontist no later than age seven, regardless of whether or not an obvious orthodontic problem is present. This allows the orthodontist to begin monitoring the patient’s dental and skeletal development while creating a relationship with the patient. When necessary, the orthodontist may intervene to guide the eruption of teeth and alter the relationship or growth of the jaws.

Common problems addressed through early orthodontic treatment (interceptive orthodontics) orthodontics include excessively protruded teeth, digit habits, under-bites, deep bites, severe crowding, excessive spacing, and space loss or collapse following the premature loss of baby teeth.
