As kids grow, their bite and the straightness of their teeth can deviate from normal appearance and functioning. Some dental problems that can be cured with orthodontic treatment might surprise you. These include:
The Orthodontic procedure begins earlier now than it used to, while some baby teeth are still present. Early treatment helps mitigate the growing problem, eliminate the cause, direct the growth of facial and jawbones, and provide adequate space for emerging permanent teeth.

For example, the embarrassing old metal braces have been replaced with plastic-based (sometimes clear) materials and other minute orthodontic devices for the improvement of alignment of teeth and jaws.

The bottom line is: the earlier concerns with your child’s jaw or teeth are identified, the easier, quicker and better they can be treated.
