Not all children need orthodontic care, but all children do need monitoring so that any dental problems that may arise can be found early. In general, the earlier a problem is identified, the less invasive the treatment needed to correct it.

Since most children do not start seeing their first permanent teeth (their first molars) until age 6, it is generally recommended that you begin monitoring your child’s jaw and tooth growth around age 7. Symptoms to look for that could indicate early orthodontic care is needed include:

  • Early loss of permanent teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between the front teeth
  • Difficulty chewing, missing teeth
  • Cheek biting, thumb sucking
  • Over or underbite
  • Clenching or grinding of teeth

When treatment is begun early, your orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and permanent teeth, preventing or diminishing further misalignment or damage. Using traditional braces, spacers, lingual braces, and other treatment methods, orthodontists can help children grow up with confident, healthy smiles.
