The earlier orthodontic problems are identified, the better your chances are of needing less treatment. That is why it is recommended children have an orthodontic assessment between the ages of 7 and 11. During this time their teeth and jaw are still growing so we’re able to identify any issues they may have in the future and plan for it accordingly. In younger children, minor movements of teeth may be needed which is when removable braces are recommended.
The Benefits of Removable Braces
• Effective for minor tooth movements
• Helps correct crossbites especially for anterior teeth
• Gentle on baby teeth
• Produces results within 6 to 9 months
• Can be removed for contact sports and cleaning
