At Lehi Orthodontics, we know that orthodontic treatment is about achieving a healthy bite and beautiful smile. But it is also an opportunity to make a positive impact on someone’s life! Let us help you and your children obtain a perfect and straight smile.
While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment because all children grow in their permanent teeth over a long span of time, it is recommended that you visit Lehi Orthodontics around the age of seven. Before then, it is up to parents to detect any warning signs that your child may need orthodontic treatment for their growing teeth. Though its not always easy to know if your child needs orthodontics, here are a few things to look for. Please take your child to see your Orthodontist at Lehi Orthodontics if they have:
- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth
- Misaligned teeth or jaw
- Disproportionate jaws and teeth
- Hard time chewing or biting food
- Finger or thumb sucking
An early evaluation at Lehi Orthodontics can mean an easier treatment plan for your child’s healthy and beautiful smile. To learn more about child orthodontics and permanent teeth versus baby teeth, please visit our orthodontic office and speak with renowned orthodontist today!
