Taming those little teeth to bite just right.
The AAO recommends that children receive their first Orthodontic consult at age 7. Dr. Smith’s guideline for early treatment is “save the parent time or money in the future.” He understands that kids can be mean and if there is a benefit to psycho-social health or self-esteem, we can align the front four teeth with brackets and wires, then add retainers to hold their position until the child is mature for full braces.
A sample of the other conditions that can require early treatment are:
• Tongue Thrusting
• Space holding from early teeth loss
• Severe overjet (buck teeth)
