Early orthodontic treatment is the best way to ensure that your child’s smile will develop to be as perfect as he or she is. Problems with the jaw and teeth can develop early, and some symptoms of that include crowding of the teeth, protruding teeth, underbite and early or late loss of baby teeth.
For most kids, all of their baby teeth are gone by age 13, and by high school the jaw has hardened and stopped growing. At this point orthodontic care can take much longer than earlier on in a child’s development. If you see any of these dental issues developing, feel free to schedule a consultation with us to see if early orthodontic treatment is right for your child.
