Achieving a perfect bite and a beautiful smile as a teenager or adult involves seeing a Specialist Orthodontist for advice when your child is young!
If your child is around the ages of 8 years and upwards and starting to show dental problems such as:
...then this is a good time to have your child assessed by a Specialist Orthodontist so that you can seek proper advice regarding the need for early intervention or if you should wait until the teenage years for treatment.
Early detection and correction between 8 and 10 years of age usually reduces the need for more complicated treatment later on. In many cases, it reduces the need for dental extractions altogether when they are teenagers. However often a second phase of treatment is required for the best result.
That being said, not all young children with a mix of ‘baby’ and adult teeth require early orthodontic intervention – keeping an eye out for the above issues and discussing them with your trusted Orthodontist will help ensure your child’s bite and smile stays in check.
