Early Orthodontic Treatment

Having a nice smile gives a child a great deal of confidence. They smile more, feel great doing so, and they avoid feeling ashamed, like some do that have oral problems. Often times, children who suffer from conditions where their teeth are crowded or their bite is off, among other conditions, may be teased or have lower self confidence as a result.

An important condition that early orthodontic treatment can help to address is Class II Malocclusion, which is otherwise known as “buck teeth.” While children who have this condition may grow up being teased and feeling embarrassed, the orthodontist may be able to help correct it through early orthodontic treatment.

Some of the more common early orthodontic treatments that may help children include:

Braces. Some children may be able to benefit from having braces, even partial ones, at an early age. They can be used in treating crossbites and preventing damage to supporting structures.
Palatal Expander. This is used to treat severe crossbite. Headgear. This is used as a treatment for buck teeth.
Face Mask. This is a treatment that can be used for an underbite.
Additionally, the orthodontist may perform extractions if there is severe crowding taking place. All in all, seeing an orthodontist can help to ensure that your child will have crooked teeth straightened, and that erupting teeth will be guided into place. They will also watch to make sure that any bite problems are addressed.
