Early Orthodontic Treatment
Around 10% of children
can benefit from early interceptive orthodontic treatment.
Did you know that facial growth and development problems can be recognised and treated early in most cases.
Around 10% of children can benefit from early interceptive orthodontic treatment to help to avoid facial irregularities or complex bite and orthodontic problems developing. Ideally they should be treated between the ages of 7 to 9, which is why the best time to seek out an orthodontic consultation for your child for the first time is around seven years of age.
Treatment at this early age can be crucial for some children, as the bones of the face and the tooth positions can be easily manipulated, when early signs of deformity or less than ideal growth is observed. This is not possible after a certain age because the facial bones and joints become more dense.
