invisalign-liberty-moMany people think that the only time you need to take your child to the orthodontist for braces consultations is in their early teens. However, according to most orthodontists, this is much too late for your child to first be visiting an orthodontist, and you should have them evaluated at a younger age. There are a multitude of possible treatment benefits when your child has an early evaluation, and our expert for Invisalign® in Liberty, MO, outlines them below.

Catching Problems Early

Our orthodontist is specially trained to be able to detect jaw growth problems and bite abnormalities. These problems can be detected even when your child still has baby teeth, as certain jaw and bite disorders simply have to do with the structure of the jaw and the way the teeth are growing. Finding and starting treatment for these disorders as early as possible increases the chances of success.

What Problems, What Treatment?

Some problems that can be caught and treated early include:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Extra teeth growing in
  • Abnormal jaw growth

Our orthodontist can detect any possible anomalies on an x-ray and recommend treatment plans depending on your child’s results.

What Age Is Recommended?

Most orthodontists recommend that you bring your child in for an evaluation before the age of 7. After this age, the bones in the mouth continue growing and start to fuse and harden, making orthodontic treatment more difficult and painful. In addition to a higher chance of treatment success, early intervention often has shorter treatment times in general, making the process easier for you and your child.

It is possible that your child has completely normal teeth and jaw growth, which is great! However, if there are any issues, our orthodontist wants to make sure to guide your child’s orthodontic health in the right direction at the earliest opportunity.
