(You were getting tired of the usual FAQ, weren't you?)
Q1: When is the recommended age for early orthodontic assessment?
If you chose 'b', good for you!
Q2: Why should children get assessed at this age?
You chose 'c', right? Isn't that info good to know?!
Q3: How does early assessment help in such a dramatic way?
Was this one a bit tricky? Nice! So here's the answer:
Early assessment is definitely NOT in order to fix everything at a young age.
Some orthodontic issues are mild to moderate, nothing very complex. These issues can comfortably wait until the permanent teeth have erupted (are in place) and be treated later on when the child is 12-15 years old.
And while AV Orthodontics is always super pleased to get to know each and every child that comes to us, we never waste your time with unnecessary visits.
Orthodontics can influence jaw development. This allows the rest of the teeth to come in reasonably well.
Net result? Later treatment can be done in a very straightforward fashion.
If your child has an underbite, crossbite, sleep apnea, crowded teeth, too much space between teeth or you'd just like peace of mind about your child's orthodontic situation, Dr. Antosz and Dr. Vincelli look forward to hearing from you.2 years ago
