Early Orthodontics

Early orthodontics is a specialized branch of pediatric dentistry that focuses on correcting malocclusions and misaligned teeth in children. It involves diagnosing and treating developing dental and facial problems at an early stage, typically between the ages of 6 and 12 years, when the child’s teeth and jaws are still developing.

Who are the candidates?

Early orthodontics is typically recommended for children with developing dental and facial problems- including overcrowding, protruding teeth, crossbite, underbite, and overbite. The specific treatment plan will depend on the child’s individual needs and may involve the use of appliances such as braces, expanders, or retainers. Regular follow-up appointments will also be required to monitor the child’s progress and ensure the best possible outcome.
