Early Orthodontic Treatment
There is no set age when children require orthodontics. The treatment plan will depend on individual needs. For example, kids with cleft palates get orthodontic appliances before their first teeth erupt.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic evaluation no later than 7 years old.
An experienced orthodontist, such as Dr. Hakim, can identify problems in the way that the face, jaw and teeth are developing in children sometimes as young as 2 or 3 years old. Dr. Hakim pays special attention to the airway and the effect that it could have on growth and development of jaw, and the possible relationship with snoring and sleep apnea.
Early detection and treatment may prevent serious problems from developing and achieve results that may have required surgery once the face and jaws are finished growing.
