Early age orthodontic treatment is an essential practice in medicine. If your teeth are not aligned correctly, it can lead to problems speaking or chewing, easily damaged or hard-to-clean teeth, and jaw and joint pain. Complications with your teeth or jawbone are corrected before they can cause you long-term health problems through braces, elastics, and headgear.

Doctors recommend that children receive the early orthodontic treatment they need as soon as possible while their face and jaw are still growing. Should you wait too long, any complications they have will become harder and more expensive to fix in the future, if not flat out impossible. That’s why early orthodontics is critical.

Children typically receive orthodontic treatments like braces at 12 or 13 years old. It ensures that all of the child’s deciduous teeth (or baby teeth) have fallen out, and their permanent adult teeth are erupting.

However, it is advisable to begin your child’s early orthodontic treatment at an even younger age if their dental problems are too severe. This dilemma is where early age orthodontic treatment comes in. Many young patients require early interceptive orthodontic treatment to prevent future health complications around 6 or 7 years old.

  • Preventative dental health measures for kids

Before any early orthodontic treatment, your orthodontist will make records of your child’s teeth using X-rays and sometimes molds. They will look back on them as treatment progresses.

Children may go through two phases of early orthodontic treatment.

The first early age orthodontic treatment phase starts while your child still has most baby teeth. Its goal is to ensure that adult teeth have enough space to erupt correctly. It may require a limited set of braces, space maintainers, or functional/expansion appliances. Baby teeth may need extractions to create adequate space.

After a resting period to allow teeth to grow naturally, the second phase of early orthodontic treatment begins when your child has most adult teeth. It usually entails a complete set of braces and a retainer to be worn indefinitely after the braces come off. This phase is longer than the first, and its goal is to keep your child’s teeth healthy for life.

Most children wear their braces for 18 to 36 months. Try to remind your child how important it is to wear rubber bands and headgear. If they do not, they could wear their braces even longer or render their early age orthodontic treatment useless.

My 6 year old has terrible anxiety issues with going to the dentist. This office is more than accommodating and never makes us feel like anything negative, just very patient. They’ve did 2-part appts for him just trying to go by what they thought was too much for him to handle. I’m so thankful for this office and their great staff. I really do feel like my kids matter here and appreciate every bit of their compassion and patience. I feel a warm welcomed genuine place here and so does everyone else I know who chooses to come to this office. I would recommend anyone here any day and give it 7 stars.

I am so glad I made an appointment for my grandchildren here. They couldn’t have been nicer. Everyone in the office was polite and kind. We had a very bad experience in Ringgold and they have restored my trust in pediatric dental care. We were back to today for clean and check up. I absolutely love this staff. Brittany took the time to explain exactly what was going on with Luke’s wisdom teeth I was thrilled that they added sealant to his molars . If you had a bad experience at this office it had to be before this group started their practice. I wish they could be my dentist. We had a appointment for a cleaning today 6/15/22 . Thanks to the office manager and the hard work they do helping me schedule this appointment. We had to cancel our last appointment due to basketball camp. My grandchildren are getting older and it difficult to work with them because of the different activities ,school plus part time jobs. I appreciate them for helping me help them maintain their dental health. Always cheerful and kind. I highly recommend them to everyone with children.
