When Orthodontists Can Help Kids The Most

Could your child benefit from braces? Get a straight answer from the experts on how to tell when it’s time for treatment and how to find the best orthodontist.

The First Orthodontic Evaluation

Braces are typically seen on kids in their teens, but orthodontists advise that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. These evaluations are performed by dental specialists called orthodontists, who have advanced training in the straightening and alignment of teeth. Your child’s case and circumstances will determine the need and the time for treatment. To find the best orthodontist in Frederick, ask your child’s dentist for recommendations that fit your needs.

The Best Age for Braces

Even though a child’s first orthodontic evaluation occurs at a very young age, treatment with braces or other dental appliances begins a few years later. Orthodontists want the child to lose almost all of their baby teeth and let most of permanent teeth emerge. This usually occurs between the ages of eight and 14.

The Course of Treatment

An increasing number of orthodontists are recommending an interceptive approach. This calls for using dental appliances at a much earlier age. The first phase of treatment occurs while the child still has their baby teeth. Then, the second phase begins once the permanent teeth have come in. Many of the best orthodontist experts believe that starting at such an early age can reduce the time that braces are needed by guiding the growth of teeth. Yet others who opt for traditional timing think it extends total treatment. But since the course of care depends on the case, let your child’s orthodontist determine the best time for treatment.
