Primary Orthodontic Treatment (Orthodontic Prevention)

Primary orthodontic treatment for children

What is the difference between early onset or primary orthodontic treatment with young / adult orthodontics (after development)? And why may my child need early treatment (orthodontics)? Primary treatment (orthodontics) What will help my baby in the long term?

These are just a few examples of questions about early orthodontics (orthodontics) for children. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the age of children for consultation with an orthodontist who is about seven years of age.

At this age, the orthodontist will assess whether your child will need orthodontic treatment?

Initial treatment (orthodontic prevention – also called the phase one treatment) usually starts at the age of eight or nine. (The second phase of treatment starts from the age of eleven to the beginning.) The purpose of the initial treatment is to perfectly develop the jaw as well as to correct the position of the upper teeth on the lower teeth or undrerbite (low teeth on the upper teeth). .

Early treatment (short-term) also helps to create the right environment for permanent teeth and reduces future risk.

How do you know if your child needs orthodontic treatment?

Baby teeth sooner or later (the age of teeth in your baby – should be about 5 years old and at least thirteen all teeth are permanent).
The problem of chewing or teething on one another
Mouth breathing
Your child will continue to suck his thumb after age five.
Verbal / verbal problems
Tooth brushing (high teeth and low teeth are very spacious)
Teeth that do not fit in the normal state or do not get to it at all.
Cross bite, Uncontrolled teeth at about age seven or eight

What causes orthodontic problems and how will the primary treatment (orthodontics of prevention) benefit my child?

Orthodontic problems such as abnormal teeth, excessive space between teeth, jaw problems, teeth irregularities, and teeth incompatibilities may be inherited or due to injuries to the mouth or to the child’s teeth too late or sooner or thumb sucking habits.

Most children under the age of thirteen will lose all their teeth, and until the end of adolescence, the growth of the jaw bones will be fixed.

An orthodontic process for adults often takes longer and can involve tooth extraction or oral surgery. Advice for the treatment of primary orthodontics (orthodontics) as a child can prevent the need for an orthodontic treatment in adulthood and reduce the risk of dental surgery in the future.
