When is my child ready for orthodontics?

An initial orthodontic evaluation is recommended for your child at no later than seven years of age or at the first sign of orthodontic problems. Why seven? It is because, at this age, several permanent teeth have usually grown out. This gives our dentists assurance there are permanent teeth to work on as they evaluate your child’s orthodontic condition.

In some cases, preliminary interceptive treatment is highly recommended. We call this the “Phase One” treatment. With early diagnosis, we can take the least invasive approach to giving your child better teeth and jaw development. This treatment can include an orthopaedic appliance and/or partially fixed braces. Other objectives of this procedure include making space for adult teeth and advancing or expanding your child’s jaw. Addressing these issues while your child is still growing gives us the ability to address things that, left unchecked, could require surgery and more invasive approaches in the future.

Advantages of early treatment

  • Positively influence jaw growth
  • Help maintain oral health
  • Create ideal dental arch widths
  • Improve eruption patterns
  • Reduce risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors
  • Correct malfunctional habits that may negatively influence jaw and tooth development, such as thumb sucking or mouth-breathing
  • Improve self esteem
  • Simplify or reduce treatment time should your child need orthodontic care later
  • Reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth.

Depending on your child’s bite, it may be best to wait for a few more years before getting braces. We find that some children may be suitable for braces once further growth has set in and all adult teeth are present.

Feel free to give our qualified orthodontics team a call at your earliest convenience. Together, we discuss and explore what’s best for your child and help achieve a beautiful smile.

Orthodontics and veneers before and after at Putney dental care

Today, more and more adults want teeth straightening but don’t want the self-consciousness that often comes with traditional methods to correct their orthodontic problems. If you’re an adult, unhappy with your smile, the alignment or appearance of your teeth, our clinic has exactly what you need. It’s never too late to get that perfect smile you’d be proud to wear!

Your options include:

  • Removable aligners
  • Ceramic (tooth-coloured) braces
