Orthodontics for Children

Usually by age 7 an orthodontist can determine if your child has or is developing tooth or jaw problems. Early detection and intervention is indicated for the following conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Cross bites from a narrow upper jaw
  • Baby teeth that are not falling out in a timely manner
  • Early loss of baby teeth
  • Severe overbites
  • Misaligned jaws that are responsible for poorly aligned teeth
  • Thumb sucking habits that can cause tooth and jaw problems
  • Extra teeth
  • Poorly positioned teeth
