How Early Orthodontics Can Reduce Future Dental Treatment
23rd April 2019
In some cases, orthodontic treatment as a child can prevent problems arising that need treating as an adult. Children at age 6 or 7 should have their dental health evaluated. At this point, the jaw is still developing so orthodontia can work quickly to prevent problems later.
– Early intervention can help with s overcrowded teeth, protruding front teeth or crossbite.
– Even if the child needs further orthodontic work later, this will likely be for a shorter period of time.
– Your dentist will advise if early orthodontics will benefit your child.
“Early intervention takes advantage of the fact that a child’s jaw is still growing.”
