When To Seek Treatment
At MINT dentistry, we recommend that children be evaluated for orthodontics around the age of seven. In some cases, this evaluation may be performed at an even earlier age. A full assessment can be provided so that you understand how the jaw, teeth, and gums are developing and a plan can be created. Research has shown that facial development is most active before the teen years between the ages of 7 and 11. Seeing an orthodontic professional early on allows you to plan for future needs and understand what may occur before it is time to get braces. While not every patient will need braces at a young age, for some, early intervention may be needed to control overcrowding. If necessary, we can extract some permanent teeth to make room for proper alignment. Getting braces at a younger age also helps straighten crooked teeth and completes most of the orthodontic work prior to reaching their teenage years.
Reasons for Orthodontics
There'ss lots of reasons why orthodontic treatment is either necessary or wanted. Some common reasons why patients want or need an orthodontic treatment include overcrowding of teeth, overlapping teeth, wide spaces, an overbite or underbite, upper dental protrusion (buck teeth), and a cross bite. Braces or Invisalign can create a more symmetrical, straighter smile. During your initial consultation, we’ll be able to pinpoint the exact issue and recommend the appropriate treatment to align your bite.
