Why Should I See An Orthodontist?

orthodontistThe Top 3 Reasons Your Child Should Visit ARCH Orthodontics

At ARCH Orthodontics, one of our favorite things is making new friends and meeting new patients. Our talented team of orthodontists want you to know how important it is that your child have a thorough dental examination while they’re still growing. It helps us gain a better understanding of how their teeth and mouth are taking shape.

Did you know that the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends every child should receive an orthodontic evaluation by the time they are 7 years old? To understand why this is so important, we’ve compiled a list of some reasons why it’s a good idea to schedule a visit for your child at one of our nine locations in the greater Boston area.

REASON #1 — The Earlier, The Better

To ensure stellar orthodontic treatment results for your kiddo, it’s best to bring them to an orthodontist as early as possible before permanent teeth make their appearance. A consultation can help indicate exactly where and how your child’s adult teeth will grow. We can tell so much just by looking at their baby teeth and jaw positioning!

Reason #2 — Conditions to Look Out For

An orthodontist is able to easily identify various conditions that can be corrected by orthodontic treatment. They include:

  • Cross Bite
  • Open Bite
  • Deep Bite
  • Crowding
  • Spacing

Reason #3 — Growing Together

We tell parents that it’s always best if a child’s overall physical growth rate and their orthodontic treatment progress together. It can help to avoid problems in the future that could possibly require more intense treatment when they’re older.

The team at ARCH Orthodontics is always ready to answer your questions and address your concerns when it comes to straightening your child’s smile. Never hesitate to give us a call! Together, we can decide what kind of braces, if any, will benefit their teeth for a healthy, even smile.
