Orthodontics for Children

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Children

Why would a young child need orthodontics?

Taking a preventive approach to orthodontics between the ages of 5 and 11 can significantly reduce the likelihood of needing more invasive treatments later in life. The Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their initial orthodontic assessment before the age of 7. This early evaluation is crucial because many childhood issues, such as speech problems, snoring, eating difficulties, teeth grinding, and more, may be connected to orthodontic or airway-related concerns.

You might be contemplating orthodontic treatment for your child for various reasons. Perhaps your family dentist or physician has suggested seeing an orthodontist, or maybe you've heard from other parents with young children undergoing orthodontic care. Regardless of your motivation, if you're pondering orthodontic treatment for your child, you likely have numerous questions. Is it the right time? Is it fair to them?
