An Experienced Children’s
Being a parent myself and wanting the best for my children I would like to
say that often it is wise to have an orthodontic examination at an early age to determine the best
time for treatment.
The ideal time to start looking into orthodontics
for your child will typically be no earlier than 6 years of age and no later than eight years of
Some benefits of starting early
• Aiding the jaws and teeth to align and close correctly;
• Increasing the width of the upper jaw if it is narrow;
Important signs to notice include; early loss of baby teeth or tooth structure, misalignment of
jaws and teeth, your child’s jaw shifting off-centre when biting down, crooked, protruding or
crowded teeth, large gaps between the teeth or thumb sucking.
