The Importance of Early Orthodontic Screening

It’s essential for parents to understand that orthodontic treatment is intended for patients of all ages, not just teens and adults. In fact, orthodontic screenings are particularly important for young patients, since irregularities of the teeth or jawbone are easiest to treat at this stage of life. If a child’s orthodontic issues—such as a misaligned jaw, impacted teeth, or crowded or protruding teeth—are not treated early, they will continue to be problems well into adulthood and may eventually become a serious oral health concern. For example, people who have misaligned jaws often suffer changes to their physical appearance, and they may have trouble eating or speaking. If the problem is severe enough, jaw surgery may be necessary to correct the issue. If there are any problems with your child’s teeth, gums, or jawbone, it’s best to know as soon as possible so that he or she can get the proper orthodontic treatment. If your child has not yet had an orthodontic screening, call your dentist in Renton, WA, to schedule one today.
