Early orthodontic treatment and check-ups can save you and your children a lot of hassle in the long run. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive a check-up by age 7 to increase the success of any needed dental treatments. While Dr. Rohrer probably won’t recommend braces at such a young age, it gives him the opportunity to assess your child’s situation to determine if there are any underlying or potential orthodontic-related issues.
There are several reasons for early age orthodontic treatment:
- Prepare your child’s mouth for naturally aligned permanent teeth.
- Decide if braces are necessary for your child
- Fix minor spacing or alignment issues by removing baby teeth to allow the permanent teeth to come in straight or by using spacers to give incoming teeth more room to grow.
