What’s the difference between early orthodontics and regular orthodontic treatment? Why might your child need early treatment?
These are just a few of the questions surrounding the topic of early orthodontic treatment for children. We recommend that children see an orthodontist as early as age seven. At this point, one of our orthodontic team will evaluate whether your child will need orthodontic treatment now or if it’s best to keep them under review until they’re ready to start.
What is Early Orthodontics?
Interceptive early orthodontics is the guidance of teeth eruption and correction of malocclusion (abnormal bite) by early orthodontics in order to improve future outcomes. This is usually achieved by simple fixed or removable orthodontic appliances.
