Early intervention orthodontics – 7 to 11 years
It is beneficial to have your child’s teeth examined as soon as first adult molars are through. There isn’t a set age for getting braces. Braces are suitable for both children and adults alike. Usually, for children, we advise that a visit to an dentist is in order when a child is between the ages of 8-10 years old. This is the time during which your child’s first permanent molars and incisors have begun to come in.
Phase 1 or early intervention is required for teeth that are sticking out to prevent trauma, or teeth interfering with the bite or crowded teeth that are difficult to clean. It also may be needed if your child is being teased at school about their teeth.
When should you consider booking in an early intervention orthodontics appointment?
- Early, late or irregular loss of baby teeth
- Difficulty in chewing or biting
- Mouth breathing
- Protruding teeth
- Thumb sucking beyond the age of 5
- Under bite or overbite
- Crowded, crooked or misplaced teeth
- Jaws and teeth that are out of proportion to the rest of the face.
There are several different options of braces your children can get.
