When Should Your Child Visit An Orthodontist? By Yuba City’s Favorite Orthodontist

picture1So you might be wondering at what age your child should see an orthodontist in Yuba City, CA. While each case is different, the age of consensus amongst experts (including the American Association of Orthodontists) for your child’s first screening is seven years old. Getting a look early on will give Dr. Iverson, orthodontist in Yuba City, CA and his orthodontics team the best map by which to proceed with orthodontic treatment. It will also provide you with an outline of what to expect between the 8 year and 18-year mark. At 7 years old, your child’s mouth is a blend of baby teeth and adult teeth, all of which are their primary/baby molars and four (at the least) permanent or adult anterior teeth. Proper guidance with jaw development and the creation of adequate room for the bloom of permanent teeth is optimized with advanced intervention.

The cause of and degree to which your child’s teeth are misaligned will determine when they should be fitted for braces. There is a difference of opinion between orthodontists who prefer the traditional route and those who practice an interceptive approach. Between 8 and 14 years old has been the established timeframe to begin orthodontic treatment, when the mouth has welcomed nearly all its adult teeth. Now the interceptive method involves going at the issue at an earlier age with a two phase approach.

This treatment begins with the use of dental aids provided by orthodontist, Dr. Iverson while your child is still holding most of their baby teeth. The second part of the procedure comes when your child is in possession of most or all of their adult teeth. The combination of preventative care and corrective procedures can help ensure a long life of straighter, healthier teeth.
