Children Orthodontics Hiram

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that all children get screened at about age seven, or after the upper front adult teeth erupt. This allows for any budding problems to be identified and for inceptive treatment to begin. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important to prevent future issues with teeth and jaw development. In most cases, orthodontic care begins after age 10. If no intervention is necessary after the first orthodontic check-up, the information gained through the exam and x-ray are valuable for monitoring proper growth and development at future visits.

Profound results are seen in the correction of growth imbalances with orthodontic treatment. This is one of the primary reasons why it is so important to screen young kids for potential oral health issues around seven years of age. At this stage, there is still plenty of time for more facial growth.

Cartersville Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

But orthodontics is not strictly geared toward kids and teens. Adults can receive treatment at any point in life. It is never too late to correct an imperfect smile. Sometimes tooth loss can lead to shifting of the remaining teeth. Some adults may have worn braces when they were teens, but their teeth moved out of the proper placement. Others never had the opportunity to benefit from orthodontic care in their younger years.
