An orthodontic evaluation here at Camp Little Tooth will allow Dr. Raelene Fulford to notice any developing orthodontic issues early on. Dr. Rae will also be able to advise parents on what to do next, and can refer you to an orthodontist if needed. Early detection of orthodontic problems can have an impact on the treatment options available and the length of treatment. As with anything else, the earlier these issues are detected, the better.
Does your Child Need Braces in Lafayette, Colorado?
During your child’s dental cleaning and exam, X-rays will be taken and Dr. Rae will be able to see if your child has misaligned teeth, crowding of the teeth, or an incorrect bite. Potential orthodontic issues can include:
- Missing teeth
- Extra teeth
- Teeth that are too close to each other, causing crowding
- Jaws that are out of alignment
- Abnormal bite pattern
The American Association of Orthodontists has officially recommended that children should see the orthodontist or at least have an initial orthodontic evaluation between the ages of seven and nine years old. Even if your child doesn’t have all of his or her permanent teeth, the growth pattern of the teeth can still be predicted quite accurately.
