Why are kids getting orthodontics earlier?


Last updated 1/18/2018 at Noon

It’s usually best to tackle jaw development issues when your child has lots of growth remaining. Think of your child’s mouth in three dimensions (width, height, depth). Width issues include posterior crossbites. Height includes deep overbites and open bites. And depth includes underbites and large overjets. Your child will enjoy a better and more stable long-term result with managing these early. Habits (like thumb sucking) should not be delayed. Teeth position can also contribute to dental and gum injuries. Finally, sometimes short and simple orthodontic treatments can significantly improve a child’s smile and boost their self-confidence. We at Stellar Kids Dentistry are pros at assessing and monitoring your child’s growth and development. Schedule an appointment and we would love to chat!
