The earlier a child receives orthodontic treatment, the better, according to dental experts. Orthodontic treatment can begin as early as the age of 6 years old:
– Early treatment is highly effective as the jaw is still growing, so this is particularly helpful with problems such as protruding teeth and crossbites.
– Braces for children are more comfortable and fun nowadays with lighter wires and choices of elastic colours.
– Your child’s dentist will be happy to discuss if they think an orthodontic assessment would be valuable.
Early treatment may shorten and simplify future treatment in selected cases.
