When To Seek Treatment
The professionals at MINT dentistry recommend that you have your child evaluated for orthodontic treatment close to seven years old. Occasionally, our team may suggest the evaluation be performed earlier. A thorough examination will be performed so we can see how the jaw, gums, and teeth are forming so we can customize an orthodontic treatment plan. Scientific research has proved that dental development is critical from age 7 – 11 years old. A consultation with an orthodontist early on gives you the opportunity to plan for developing needs and know what could be an issue before it'ss time to get an orthodontic treatment. Even though some patients will not require an orthodontic treatment before they are 13 years old, intervening early may help to avoid problems like overcrowding. Some patients will require the extraction of teeth to allow space for ideal alignment. Having orthodontics early also helps improve a misaligned bite and finishes their orthodontic treatment allows patients to get the treatment out of the way early.
Reasons for Orthodontics
There are a number of reasons why orthodontics are not only desired but necessary, in some cases. A few of the most common reasons people undergo orthodontic treatment are overcrowded or overlapping teeth, large spaces between teeth, an underbite or overbite, buck teeth (upper dental protrusion), as well as a cross bite. An orthodontic treatment can create a straighter, more symmetrical smile. At your consultation, your team will diagnose your specific problem and explain which orthodontic treatments will correct your problem.
