5 Reasons Why Children Need Braces Dental experts recommend that your kid should have orthodontic tests when they’re 7 years old if there’s an apparent problem or your dentist says so. To maintain regular child dental care practice, your child should get braces when they’re about 11-12 years old. Bad habits such as thumb sucking and childhood accidents can have a negative effect on tooth alignment, potentially worsening problems that have to do with family genetics. The best time to get your child braces is when your dentist notices signs of misalignment or you spot signs of crooked teeth. Your child might need braces if they have any of these 5 problems.

The Essential Laws of Dentists Explained
All teeth don’t grow straight, which may cause unavoidable tooth problems like overlapping, overcrowded, and crooked teeth, which all may require braces. In general, braces are usually recommended for hygienic as well as cosmetic reasons. Jaw issues Jaw problems like malocclusions, which cause jaw sizes to be different, can also require braces. Around 15% of children have jaw problems that actually result in pain and discomfort, or make normal chewing difficult. These kids should be attended to as soon as possible. Certain malocclusions can even disfigure children to the extent they have problems in forming relationships, they find schooling difficult, and find it harder to get a job when they’re older. Buck teeth An overbite means a kid’s upper teeth protrude forward so much (also known as “buck teeth”) due to their upper jaw being bigger than their lower jaw. An overbite is essentially a skeletal dysfunction that must be corrected at either early childhood or in the teenage years. Underbite This issue occurs when the child’s bottom jaw is larger than their top jaw. It’s potentially less difficult to solve this problem earlier instead of later, but there are typically no major issues if you wait until your child is a little older. Overcrowding This is the leading malocclusion that affects about 90% of kids. Overcrowding typically happens in children’s bottom teeth. If the crowding isn’t serious, it may not need solving and even serious crowding can become less severe on its own over time while a child’s jaw grows into adult size. Open bite This jaw problem happens when a kid’s front teeth don’t come together fully when they bite down. In most situations, it’s wise to wait till your child sheds his/her baby teeth to solve this problem, because as children get older, the upper and lower rows of front teeth often gradually grow nearer each other. Crossbite The growth of the top and bottom jaws determines the teeth’s position. When the mandibular/maxilla growth of jaw is not normal, then it leads to a crossbite, which may be corrected with expanders.
