braces with elasticMost orthodontic problems (malocclusions) are inherited. Examples of these genetic problems are crowding, spacing, protrusion, extra or missing teeth, and some jaw growth problems. Other malocclusions are acquired as a result of thumb- or finger sucking, dental disease, accidents, the early or late loss of baby (primary) teeth, or other causes.
If you are worried about something that you see developing with your child, the first thing you want to do is ask your general family or pediatric dentist. They will most likely refer you to an Orthodontist to better evaluate the problem and offer a reasonable treatment plan and solution.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children have a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age seven. However, the AAO does not advocate comprehensive orthodontic treatment this early. Interceptive treatment may be appropriate depending on the type of problem indicated. Final treatment decisions should be made among the parent, child’s dentist and orthodontist.
