Expert Elma & Williamsville Orthodontist for Children’s Early Orthodontic Treatment

How Can You Tell If Your Child Needs Early Orthodontic Treatment?

williamsville orthodontist childrens orthodonticsOur Elma, and Williamsville orthodontist at More Than A Smile Orthodontics realizes the countless benefits that can come when a child visits the orthodontist in the earlier stages of life. This is why our expert team follows the recommendation of The American Association of Orthodontists, which urges all parents to bring their children to be evaluated by a trained orthodontic specialist at the age of 7. Keep in mind that early evaluation is not the same thing as early treatment! Our orthodontists take that opportunity to examine your child’s bite and jaw alignment, which allows them to see if there is any preventative treatment that could reduce the severity or expense of treatment after all the adult teeth have erupted. Most parents who bring their child in for an early evaluation leave the office again happy to know that orthodontic treatment can wait – or won’t be needed at all.

Ultimately, only a trained orthodontic specialist can tell for sure if your child would benefit from early treatment, since many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. However, if you observe any of the following signs in your child, then we strongly recommend that you bring your child in for an evaluation.

Signs That Your Child May Need Early Orthodontic Treatment:

  • Difficult chewing and/or biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Speech impediments
  • Protruding teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Thumb-sucking or finger-sucking past age 3

How Will Your Child Benefit From Early Orthodontic Treatment?

In the cases where preventative orthodontics are recommended, this early treatment can bring about numerous benefits for a child, including…

  • Eliminate the need for adult tooth extractions
  • Reduce or eliminate the need for braces later
  • Reduce or eliminate the need for jaw surgery
  • Improve overall facial development
