Early Orthodontics

More and more dentists are appreciating the benefits of early orthodontic treatment. While it’s certainly not for every child, the benefits of early intervention could result in shorter and less expensive treatment down the road.

The main advantage of early orthodontic treatment is that it’s easier to correct conditions like jaw size discrepancies, narrow jaws and crowded teeth because the child’s jaws are still developing at this stage.

Conditions that can benefit from early intervention include late or early loss of baby teeth, misplaced teeth, crossbites, underbites and overbites, as well as chronic thumbsucking.

The American Association of Orthodontists along with Clear Smiles Alaska firmly believe that children as young as 7 years old should be evaluated by an orthodontist to determine if braces or other dental appliances are required, or if there are steps necessary to avoid extensive and costly orthodontic treatment in the future.
