Orthodontics for Children

Ideally your child’s first orthodontic appointment should occur around age 7.  Dr. Nakfoor will examine your child’s mouth and determine if your child needs orthodontic treatment and then recommend the best age for your child to begin treatment. world time By age 7, most children have their first permanent molars and incisors. This is a good age to identify conditions that may become problematic as the child grows up, such as cross bites, crowding and jaw misalignment. When treatment is started early Dr. Nakfoor can help guide the growth of the jaw and incoming permanent teeth.   Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, reduce the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth and correct thumb sucking.   In other words, early treatment can simplify later treatment.
