Early Treatment

An orthodontist will enhance a smile at any age although The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than the age of 7. At this early age, orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but vigilant examination can anticipate the most appropriate time to begin treatment ensuring the best result and the least amount of time and expense.  

 

Some signs of habits that indicate the need for early orthodontic examination are:

 

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Difficulty in chewing or biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Thumb or finger sucking
  • Crowding, misplaced or blocked out teeth
  • Jaws that shift or make sounds
  • Teeth that meet abnormally or not at all
  • Jaws and teeth that are out of proportion to the rest of the face
