Problems to Watch for in Seven Year Olds

It is recommended that all children have a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.

Reasons for this Examination:

  • The posterior occlusion is established when the first molars erupt. At that time, one can evaluate the antero-posterior and transverse relationships of the occlusion, as well as discover any functional shifts or crossbites.
  • Incisors have begun to erupt and problems can be detected such as crowding, habits, deep bites, open bites and some jaw discrepancies.
  • For some, a timely evaluation will lead to significant treatment benefits; for others, the principal immediate benefit is a parent's peace of mind.

 
Malocclusions like those illustrated below, may benefit from early diagnosis and referral to an orthodontic specialist for a full evaluation. The orthodontist's goal is to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment at the most appropriate time.
