Early Orthodontic Problems to Look for in Your Children

July 27th, 2015

Early Orthodontic Problems

Problems to Watch for in Young Children

Not all 2nd or 3rd graders need orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists does recommend that all children be evaluated by an Orthodontist by the age of 7, so parents will know if their child needs early, interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Your child may have one or more of these dental or skeletal problems, which may require early interceptive orthodontic treatment. Dr. Morris is trained to evaluate skeletal and dental disharmonies and also when early orthodontic treatment is necessary.

Here is the list of common problems observed in young children where early treatment is often necessary:
Excessive spacing of the teeth may or may not be an indication for the need of early orthodontic treatment. Spacing can indicate permanently missing teeth, misshaped teeth or excessive jaw growth.

Crowding at a young age can mean difficulty with keeping the teeth clean and also the potential that future permanent teeth may have to be removed.

Open Bite can be an indication of possible thumb or tongue habit. It might also mean the direction the upper and lower jaws are growing is in an unfavorable direction.

Overbite may mean that the lower teeth are biting into the roof of the mouth, damaging the gum tissue behind the top teeth. Typically, this also indicates a facial imbalance.

Crossbite of front teeth can cause gingival recession of the lower front teeth, while also preventing adequate growth of the upper jaw.

Crossbite of back teeth can cause a facial asymmetry and a crooked smile. It may also be an indication of a narrow upper jaw and/or crowded upper teeth.

Underbite can be an indication of an upper jaw underdevelopment or a lower jaw that has grown too much. Both situations need to be addressed as soon as possible.

Overjet that is excessive can lead to a greater possibility of chipped, fractured or lost teeth due to traumatic injuries.

Abnormal eruption of the teeth may or may not be an indication for the need of early orthodontic treatment.

Call us today for a free consultation to know for sure whether these problems exist and need to be corrected now or later.
