Early Orthodontic Dentistry For Children
When it comes to orthodontics, most people probably only think older kids, teens and adults can receive treatment. On the contrary, children can be seen for orthodontic dentistry even as early as seven years old.
In some cases, children will benefit from early orthodontic treatment so they can get amazing permanent results. Such early orthodontic dentistry (often referred to as Phase One) can begin at about age 9. After initial early treatment, a second phase may begin around the age of 11. Often early treatment can correct bite issues and jaw alignment, as well as help permanent teeth erupt correctly.
