There is no set age for children to begin an orthodontic treatment, however, it is recommended a visit to your orthodontist around the age of 7. At this stage of their life, the child has a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth that makes it easier for your orthodontist to diagnose and correct any tooth or jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

Seeking orthodontic treatment for your child may help prevent more serious problems from developing and reduce the complexity or cost of treatments later in life.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EARLY INTERVENTION?

Early intervention usually aims to intercept any developing problems by normalizing the growth environment to allow for improved future growth.

This can reduce the need or simplify any future orthodontic treatment. The benefits for early intervention include harmonious development of jaws, reducing or eliminating the need for extractions, eliminating abnormal tooth wear and reducing the risk of trauma to the front teeth.

CONCERNS TO LOOK FOR ARE:

  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Space between the upper and lower rows of teeth noticeable when your child smiles or bites together
  • Crossbites
  • Excessive crowding
  • Large overbite and a recessive lower jaw
  • Congenitally missing teeth
  • Delayed tooth eruption
  • Obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Protrusive front teeth at risk of trauma
  • Excessive mouth breathing and snoring
