One of the primary reasons that orthodontic treatment works so well in children is because they’re still growing. This is what allows various treatment methods to ensure proper alignment in the jaw. This timing is an appropriate opportunity to identify any potential bite or growth problems that could negatively impact your child’s dental and skeletal development.
By conducting an early assessment, it is possible to evaluate the alignment and eruption situation of the teeth within the available space of the jaw, as well as to assess growth patterns. Beginning treatment at an earlier period supports easier skeletal and dental adjustments, often will avert the future need for surgery, possibly lower overall expenses, and can allow for orthodontic treatments to be successfully accomplished by earlier ages.
