Traditionally, parents didn't worry about their kid's teeth alignment until they hit their teens. However, time and research have determined that many kids benefit greatly from having a screening for orthodontic treatment at an early age.

The American Association of Orthodontists advises that children should have their first orthodontic screening by age 7. At this point, kids have typically lost several of their baby teeth so a dentist can see how their permanent teeth are beginning to come in. This is the most ideal time to identify problems such as crossbites, overbites, or crowding. Early orthodontic treatment can help avoid more complex treatment down the road such as surgery or extractions.

Few signs for parents to tell if your child could benefit from early orthodontic treatment:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Grinding at night.
  • Mouth breathing.
  • Snoring.
  • Thumb sucking.
  • Speech impediments.
  • Narrow jaw structure.
  • Dark circles under the eyes.
  • Airway and Facial concern
