Orthodontics recommend carrying out the first consultation with the orthodontic around the age of 7 years. At Creative Designs Orthodontic Studio, we offer preventive orthodontic laboratory Vancouver to our patients.
Although an orthodontic can improve a smile at any age, there is an optimal time to begin treatment. Starting treatment early guarantees better results in less time. An early assessment allows problems to be detected earlier and to ensure more effective treatment opportunities. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, the orthodontic can carefully monitor the growth and development of the teeth and thus begin orthodontic treatment at the ideal time.
At the age of 7, the first permanent teeth erupt, establishing dental occlusion. This is the right time for the orthodontic to assess the adequate relationships of this occlusion. This information allows for careful intervention to guide the growth and development of teeth while helping to prevent more severe problems from developing in the future.
The most common time to start orthodontic treatment is between the ages of 11 and 15, and for good reason. By age 12, most if not all permanent teeth have erupted and are in place. Crooked teeth, interdental spaces and a bad bite can be easily detected. Since these problems rarely correct on their own, most parents decide to undergo orthodontic treatment.
This is also the right time for orthodontic treatment because many negative aspects of wearing braces are not yet present. Many children of this age are already undergoing orthodontic treatment.
THE BENEFITS OF RAPID GROWTH
Pre-teens grow quickly, which allows Ortho-dontists to take advantage of this growth peak to form good teeth. They also have a high metabolism allowing a shorter duration of treatment and a reduction in discomfort associated with the treatment.
THE ADVANTAGES OF INTERCEPTIVE THERAPY
- The direct results of interceptive therapy are
- Creating space for erupting teeth
- Creating facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth
- Reducing the risk of trauma to the protrusive incisors
- Preservation of space for impacted teeth
- Reducing the need for tooth extraction
- Reducing the duration of treatment with fixed dental appliances (braces)
MOUTHGUARDS AND SPORT
We recommend wearing mouth guards when playing high-risk sports. Does your child play sports? If this is the case, do not hesitate to bring us your mouthguard for adjustments and some advice. We will help you find the right mouthguard to wear during orthodontic treatment.
