When To Seek Orthodontic Treatment

Children, teenagers, and adults may all be excellent candidates for orthodontic treatment. However, our MINT dentists recommend that you have your child evaluated for orthodontic treatment when they are about the age of seven. At times, this evaluation may be performed when they are even younger. A full assessment can be provided so you understand how the teeth, gums, and jawbone are forming, which will help determine an orthodontic treatment plan. Scientific research has proven that facial development is most active from age 7 – 11 years old. Seeing an orthodontic professional early on gives you the opportunity to plan for the future and understand what to expect before it is time to begin orthodontic care. While not every patient will require braces at a young age, for some, early intervention may help to avoid dental problems, like overcrowding. In certain cases, we may perform an extraction of a few teeth to allow room for proper alignment. Having braces at a younger age also helps align teeth for a healthy bite.

Reasons for Orthodontics

There are a number of reasons why orthodontic treatment for kids or adults may either be desired or recommended. A few of the most common reasons include overcrowded or overlapping teeth, wide spaces, an overbite or underbite, upper dental protrusion (buck teeth), and a cross bite. Orthodontic treatment from MINT dentistry can create a more symmetrical, aligned smile. During the initial consultation, our team will pinpoint the exact orthodontic concern(s) and recommend the appropriate treatment to help bring your or your child's teeth into alignment.
