The Benefits of Early Orthodontic Treatment for Children

Posted on 8/21/2023 by Rendon Orthodontics
The Benefits of Early Orthodontic Treatment for ChildrenEarly orthodontic treatment is a comprehensive intervention for children aged 6 to 10 years. This treatment is primarily done before the permanent teeth erupt. Some of the benefits your child can accrue from early orthodontic treatment include:

Correction of Bite Problems

Children can have various bite issues, such as crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite. Bite problems increase the risk of tooth damage, gum disease, and tooth decay. The problems can lead to painful conditions such as TMJ disorder. In the long run, it will affect the child's eating and speaking ability. Orthodontic treatment helps to ensure the lower and upper teeth are well aligned and improves jaw and bite alignment. It is crucial to seek orthodontic treatment as early as possible.

Guides the Jaw Growth

Children's bones and jaws are still developing, making it possible for manipulation. A dental expert can note any jaw irregularities, such as narrow jaw arches, and use various treatment modalities to create more space for incoming permanent teeth and help properly align the jaw. Early treatment helps to prevent costly and invasive procedures such as surgical jaw correction later in life.

Create Room for Growth of Permanent Teeth

Children may have misaligned and crowded teeth if they have insufficient space in their jaws. Early orthodontic treatment is quite beneficial, and it helps to create more space by guiding the growth of your jaw. This makes it easy for permanent teeth to erupt in the right manner.

Corrects Harmful Habits

Early orthodontic treatment also helps to address common harmful oral habits such as tongue-thrusting and thumb-sucking, which can affect facial development. A pediatric dentist can recommend habit appliances, such as a palatal crib cemented on the upper palate. This device is a good obstacle to discourage thumb sucking. This will help prevent interposition between the child's incisors.
