Your child’s baby teeth play an important role in the development of the adult smile. Baby teeth guide the permanent teeth into their proper places. So when they fall out, the adult teeth can grow in. As your child’s permanent teeth grow, it is essential to have regular dental checkups. When your child has reached about 7 years of age and has lost their first tooth or two, you can have them assessed by an orthodontist. This is the official recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists. The orthodontist will evaluate the child’s tooth development and help prevent any problems. Sometimes an early phase of treatment is indicated. This can ensure that teeth are coming in straight, along with proper jaw growth. We will also be able to look for overcrowding problems and intercept any bad habits. If we find these problems early, we can help solve them earlier too! This can result in less complicated treatments in the future and potentially saving you more time and money! To learn more about early phase treatment, read our page on treatment for children.
To find out the best orthodontic treatment options for your child or yourself, book a consultation with our experienced team at Beach Braces! Remember, you do not need a referral to see an orthodontist.
