Orthodontics for children with baby teeth.

Will my child grow out of their orthodontic result if we start too early?

You may be hesitant to have an orthodontic assesssment if your child still has baby teeth, but the truth is that when children are young there can be an opportunity to make room for the future adult teeth and to guide the growth of your child’s jaws.

Early signs

  • Crowded baby teeth
  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
