Early orthodontic treatment avoids the development of many problems in the future. The earlier proper care and treatment begins, the more chances there are to prevent the development of dangerous diseases in the future. This is the key to a healthy and beautiful smile.
It is very important to visit an orthodontist in childhood. The children’s orthodontist determines how well the teeth are positioned, the features of the jaw development. The optimal age for the first visit is 7-8 years. No one is protected from the development of orthodontic problems. The reasons for their occurrence:
- bad habits that affect the incorrect formation of the bite (incorrect tongue holding);
- premature loss of baby teeth;
- injuries, infections.
A pediatric orthodontist will help detect problems at an early stage of occurrence. To do this, it is necessary to make a timely appointment with the child in order to avoid serious consequences in the future. If you start therapy at the age of 10-15 years, it will be highly effective.
