Orthodontic evaluations are highly recommended for children by the time they reach age 7, or even earlier if there are any indications of concern to warrant it. At Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, we’re committed to proactive treatment, and by addressing the problems of tooth and jaw alignment that often show up early in life, we can head off the larger and more complicated ones that would be likely to show up around adolescence.
Properly positioned teeth have many benefits for your child. For one thing, his or her smile will look better. Equally important is that there will be less chance of discomfort. And when it comes to promoting and maintaining a high level of oral hygiene, it’s important to keep in mind that the more ideally aligned her or his teeth are, the easier it will be to floss between them. That means less incidence of tooth decay and gum disease to deal with. Your child will have a full examination and assessment at our orthodontic office Palm Beach. You may be motivated to do so by noticing one or more of the following signs: finger or thumb sucking, misplaced teeth, chewing problems, breathing through the mouth, teeth that are blocked out, jaws making clicking sounds, jaws and teeth being out of proportion with the rest of the face, or baby teeth either falling out too early or staying in too long. Or you might just want to have the peace of mind to know that your child is not in need of attention from our orthodontic office Palm Beach right now. What is indisputable is that the sooner your child is evaluated, the simpler it will be to deal with issues that would otherwise grow worse without proper care.
