You Want To Learn About Braces & Orthodontics For Your Child

New Rochelle, NY’s Favorite Orthodontist For Children’s Braces

When is the best time to begin orthodontics?
Though our board certified New Rochelle orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, the optimal time period to begin treatment is earlier in life. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. At this early age, braces and orthodontic treatment may not be necessary, but regular examinations can help in anticipating any problems that may arise for your child.

What are the benefits of early orthodontic evaluation?
Early evaluation provides timely detection of problems and greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Mild intervention can guide your child’s growth and development as well as preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.

Why is age 7 considered the optimal time for screening?
By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, establishing your child’s back bite. During this time, our New Rochelle orthodontist can evaluate front-to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships. For example, the presence of erupting incisors can indicate possible overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. Timely screening increases your child’s chances for an incredible smile.

What are the advantages of interceptive treatment?
Some of the most direct results of interceptive treatment are:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth.
  • Creating facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth.
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth.
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth.
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal.
  • Reducing treatment time with braces.

Is your child a candidate for orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth, or feel about your smile.

Why should malocclusions be treated?
According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can create a variety of problems. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Crossbites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Open bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make your smile pretty – it creates a healthier you.
