A Myriad of Signals
There are a few answers to this, but the simplest is that you should come and see us anytime you have a questions about the alignment of your teeth or the health and function of your bite. While this is sometimes obvious in cases where there’s a clear problem in the alignment of teeth or the jaws don’t meet correctly, other times, it may be far more subtle – but just as serious. Conditions like mouth breathing, clenching or grinding of teeth, or an inability to comfortably close your lips are all signs that you may need treatment, and even things as subtle as your jaws frequently shifting position can indicate a problem. These guidelines are really just the tip of the iceberg – so click on the video to learn more.
Orthodontics for Children
While the guidelines we’ve just outlined are more general, children have more specific guidelines to follow. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic examination by age 7 – and with good reason. At this age, the back bite is established, so we can clearly identify any current or developing problems. This lets us decide the best time to begin treatment, even if it’s a few years down the line. Secondly, there are some conditions best treated early on. For issues like crossbite and crowding, we can use a palatal expander to literally widen the upper jaw and create more room for teeth – something that would necessitate costly surgery later in life.
