Your kid's bright smile and evergreen oral health can make a huge difference in their self-confidence and mental wellbeing. Parents should take timely action to prevent complications that arise out of irregular growth of teeth. Kids can need orthodontic treatment for many numbers of reasons. These include growth of crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, overlapping teeth or malocclusion. Malocclusion is a condition which arises due to mismatch between the teeth size and the jaw size.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that kids have a compulsory visit to an orthodontist by the age of seven. At Embrace Orthodontics™, we agree with the necessity of seeking an early orthodontic evaluation. At this early age, dental treatment may not be necessary but through a thorough examination we can decide the ideal time to start the treatment if need be. The objective of the early assessment is to check for the growth of the teeth and look for certain bite problems such as overbite and underbite. Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in proper shapes and sizes, thereby significantly reducing the chances of teeth extractions in the future.
Receiving early orthodontic treatment as a child and adopting healthy oral and dental practices can help to prevent the need for orthodontics or dental treatment as an adult. It is advised to take care of your child's teeth from an early age. An important point to remember is that some orthodontic complications are easy to diagnose and treat during childhood.
