When teeth are out of line at an early age, it's time to act.

Early orthodontic treatment

Tooth and jaw misalignments do not grow out on their own.
But when is the ideal time to have a to have a malocclusion corrected?
In general, the earlier treatment is started, the treatment is started, the less complicated and the successful it can be.
In this way, more costly therapies can often be avoided in the future.

The sooner, the better...

When severe dental malocclusions become apparent in young children, there is no time to lose. Classical for an early start of treatment in children are cross bite, severe overbite, or also a so-called progenic dentition, in which the lower jaw grows too far forward.
In addition to speech problems, these extreme malocclusions can also lead to difficulties in ingesting and crushing food.
The resulting incorrect loading of the temporomandibular joints causes long-term pain. In addition, the teeth are then worn incorrectly, which can cause massive problems, especially during the change of teeth: The permanent teeth should remain functional until old age!
The colleagues from the general dental practices refer children with these abnormalities from the age of 4. Otherwise, it is usually sufficient if the first visit to the orthodontist takes place when the child is about 7 years old.

Early orthodontic treatment can also make sense if children lose a baby tooth at a very early age.
A space maintainer can help and facilitate the subsequent eruption of the permanent tooth. Narrow spaces and unfavorable tooth displacements can thus be avoided.
