It is strongly recommended that children are seen by the orthodontist by age 7. The very first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and cross bites, crowding, and other difficulties can be assessed. Often, when treatment is started early, orthodontists can guide the development of the jaws and incoming permanent teeth. Early treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, avoid the need for permanent tooth extractions, reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb sucking and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems. To put it simply, early treatment may simplify later treatment.
