EARLY ORTHODONTIC 
TREATMENT

EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT FOR 
CHILDREN

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR CHILD MAY NEED EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth (your child should typically start losing teeth around age five, and will have all permanent teeth around age 13)
  • Difficulty chewing and/or biting
  • Mouth breathing
  • Your child continues sucking his or her thumb after age five
  • Speech impediments
  • Protruding teeth (the top teeth and the bottom teeth extend away from each other)
  • Teeth that don't come together in a normal manner or even at all
  • Shifting of the jaw when your child opens or closes his or her mouth (crossbites)
  • Crowded front teeth around age seven or eight
