Early Orthodontic Development

When it comes to growth development issues with the jaw, early intervention is the best treatment.

This treatment needs to occur during the developmental years.

If not detected until late teens or early adulthood, the treatment options are limited to surgery.

If detected before a child’s “growth spurt” treatment is as simple as wearing a plate. These can be removable or cemented in place depending on your child’s needs.

Your orthodontist can explain what type of plate is needed and show you examples of these at your consultation.

The Process

It is recommended that a general dentist monitors a child from an early age for orthodontic treatment.

Some children will have jaw development issues where the jaw does not grow to an ideal position.

Children with this growth development may require early orthodontic intervention from as early as the age of 8.
