Kids' Orthodontics in Dublin, OH

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic consultation by age 7. This consultation will allow the orthodontist to determine whether it is the best time to begin treatment. At this age, the first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in and crossbites, crowding, and other problems that may be present or become present can be evaluated before major issues arise as growth continues. When treatment is begun early, the orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatment.
