According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should be seen by an orthodontist by the age of seven. Through dental exams and x-rays, your child’s dentist will be able to track any developmental abnormalities as your child’s teeth and jaw grow. One of the main reasons why orthodontics are important is that they can solve issues with crowding. As crowding gets more severe, it will become increasingly difficult for your child to perform even the most basic oral hygiene care, like flossing.
Even if your child’s teeth look straight, there are still other issues that may need to be treated with orthodontics. Another common issue among children is an abnormal bite. There are four types of abnormal bites: overbite, underbite, crossbite, and open bite.
