Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.
Early treatment may prevent or intercept more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, the orthodontist will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
Early treatment may give your orthodontist the chance to:
Guide jaw growth
Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
Correct harmful oral habits
Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
Create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face
