Children’s Orthodontics in Wayland, MA
The Path to Your Child’s Healthiest Smile Starts Here
At Simply Dental & Orthodontics, we strongly recommend bringing your child in to experience a thorough orthodontic consultation by the age of seven. Our goal is for your child to receive early treatment in order to prevent future problems from developing. Early dental treatment with children’s orthodontics in Wayland, MA, will foster a better environment for permanent teeth to grow.
Gentle Treatment for Tiny Mouths
If your child receives an orthodontic consultation by the age of seven, we will be able to reveal potential developmental dental problems. When we’re able to identify problems early on, our team can minimize them through Phase 1 treatment, the stage that comes before traditional braces. Phase 1 Orthodontics typically incorporates at-home intervention and the use of removable oral appliances or for common issues like habitual thumb sucking in order to give your son or daughter’s smile the best start for a healthy future.
Signs that Your Child Needs an Orthodontic Assessment
Although treatment at this early stage may not even be necessary, it is especially important to schedule a screening with our orthodontist if you notice any of the following conditions in your child:
- Crowded or misplaced teeth
- Difficulty in chewing or biting food
- Early loss of baby teeth
- Mouth breathing
- Finger or thumb sucking
- Jaws that “pop” when opening and closing
- Misaligned teeth that close abnormally or without touching
- Jaws and teeth that are not in proportion to the rest of the face
What Is the Benefit of Early Treatment?
While you don’t need to rush into obtaining braces for your young children, some oral health issues can be avoided with early screening and treatment, including:
- Open bites – when the upper and lower teeth are unable to physically touch each other when the jaws are closed
- Crossbites – when the two rows of teeth don’t meet correctly. A misaligned bite can cause tooth decay, gum disease, stress on the jaw muscles, headaches, and more.
- Speech impediments
- Injury to protruding teeth
