When Should Children Go to Orthodontic Treatment?
For healthy tooth and jaw structure, each child must go to orthodontism at least once between the ages of 7 and 8. When orthodontism is not experienced in childhood, dental structure disorders are undetlerable and serious negativity such as permanent shape disorders may occur. We highly advise all parents to take their children to orthodontism at least once. It is not always right to expect milk teeth to change with permanent teeth. Orthodontic problems occur at an early age in many children.
What is the Ideal Age to Go Orthodontiste?
The ideal period in this regard is 7-8 years old. Some distortions, which cannot be detected at this age, affect the healthy and beautiful development of the jaw as the jaw structure is now sitting. The perks and imbalances in the teeth can be treated more easily at this age. 95 percent of the growth will be completed until the milk teeth have completed their change. Especially children with difficult problems such as asymmetric jaw structure should come to orthodontis during this period. The difficulty of treatment increases with the passing of the age of 8.
Don't be fooled by the dental array, there may be a problem with the jaw!
Some parents are not able to notice the major problems in the jaw by being taken into the sequenth-like sequence of children's teeth. Always show your children's jaw structure in an orthodontis at this age. Situations such as the front of the upper jaw in girls or the front of the lower jaw in boys cause uncontrolled deshavers. Abnormalities such as bird face appearance may occur. Girls in particular complete their development a year ago according to boys. Before these ages, these problems should be identified and treated.
The Importance of Starting Orthodontic Treatment Early in Children
In some cases, early onsustodontic treatment can be extremely vital. If there is a difference between your child's jaws, treatment is necessary, even if the teeth are smooth. Orthodontic treatment is essential if the back teeth close diagonally, if the front permanent teeth close diagonally, if there is an extremely narrow upper jaw structure, if the milk teeth that prevent permanent teeth from coming out have not fallen, if there is a narrowing of the jaw caused by the early pulled milk tooth.
Conditions Requiring Preventive Orthodontic Treatment
