Early Orthodontic Care is Necessary for a Healthy Smile, According to Dr. David Morrow of York Mills Orthodontics

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

Dr. David Morrow of York Mills Orthodontics explains that many parents believe that orthodontic care is only necessary for their teenagers. In reality, early treatment from an orthodontist may be necessary and important in order to enable young children to enjoy a straight, healthy smile as they age. A new article explains that, in many instances, early orthodontic care is an important part of getting the child the care necessary to prevent a small problem from becoming a major hassle later on.

The American Association of Orthodontics notes that all kids should receive an orthodontic screening by the time they turn seven. Dr. David Morrow explains the reasoning behind this stating, “Permanent teeth generally begin to come in at age six or seven. It is at this point that potential orthodontic problems can become apparent. Because bones are still growing it’s an ideal time to evaluate a child. Then we can determine what orthodontic treatment, if any, may be needed either now or in the future.”

In general, kids who have an early orthodontic screening, often experience shorter treatment time, since it can be easier to handle problems like crowding when they are addressed early on. This proactive type of treatment is known as interceptive orthodontics. It focuses on the idea that it is often easier to guide teeth into their ideal place in the mouth as they are still erupting. This type of care also enables an orthodontist to use techniques like expansion in order to make sufficient space in the child’s mouth for adult teeth.

Dr. David Morrow of York Mills Orthodontics explains, “Getting a head start by taking a child to the orthodontist for an early screening can be very helpful towards achieving a healthy smile. When parents wait to bring in their child until the permanent teeth are in place, orthodontic management can become more complex in certain cases. For example, extraction of permanent teeth may be more necessary. An early orthodontic screening for children by age seven, allows the orthodontist to establish a baseline for how the child is growing, evaluate potential treatment needs and educate the parents as to what may be required and why, for their child.”

While interceptive orthodontic care can be an important part of helping a child get a healthy smile, parents should also understand that it does not necessarily mean that this kind of care eliminates the need for future orthodontic work.

“It is important to note that children who receive interceptive orthodontics may still need braces or other orthodontic appliances in the future, when their mouth is more mature. However, this early treatment may shorten and simplify future treatment in selected cases.” He explains that this is often known as a “two-phase” treatment.

“If a child has crossbites, underbites or severe protruding front teeth, these are some examples of when it is important to take them to see an orthodontist, as these conditions frequently benefit early intervention. Early treatment is also very helpful to promote harmonious and balanced jaw growth to ensure a healthy bite and esthetically pleasing smile” explains Dr. David Morrow of York Mills Orthodontics.
