Giving Kids and Teens the Smile They Want

Although the number of adult orthodontic patients continues to increase, the majority of those wearing appliances and braces are still kids and teens, and rightfully so. The optimal time for orthodontic treatment is when you are still growing and things in your mouth are naturally shifting.

Everyone’s teeth and jaws develop differently. Some kids will have teeth that are fairly even and straight, while others have teeth that seem to go every which way. The second scenario can be caused by a variety of factors, including the size of the jaw or baby teeth that refuse to fall out and make room for the adult ones.

Common Orthodontic Issues

Some of the most common problems that can be treated by an orthodontist include:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Crowding
  • Too much space
  • Crooked teeth

To determine the most effective treatment for your children, take them to see an orthodontist at age seven. Certain issues can be addressed at this age to prepare for braces or Invisalign in their teens.
