Early orthodontic diagnosis is a boon for your child as it renders a healthy smile for your little ones. It is a myth that you will have to wait for an orthodontic treatment until your child’s adult teeth show up. An experienced orthodontist can detect dental problems even when some baby teeth are present. The dental expert can spot the underlying complications and perform required operations in time. This can protect your kid from major complexities and increase the longevity of his teeth.
Interceptive treatment: as the name suggests, the treatment is performed to intercept and prevent severe teeth issues. It is provided for children between the age of 7 and 9 and the time frame involved in the completion of the process is 8-12 months. It reduces complications of future dental treatments.
Comprehensive treatment: This treatment is commenced when the jaws and face has developed enough, that is, at an age of 11 or above. The process involves wearing fixed braces for 1-3 years based on the oral conditions and complexity of the case.
Orthodontic shortcomings can result from your genes, mouth or jaw injury, thumb or finger sucking and early or late loss of milk teeth. The normal age of falling of all the milk teeth is 13 years. This is when the jaw bone is completely developed and hardened.
Adult orthodontics takes longer time for the completion as it may involve an oral surgery and tooth extraction. Getting early regimen for your teeth problems can reduce or eliminate the chances of extraction and surgery.
