"When is the right time
for my child to have full braces?"

Increasingly, the case is being made for children to start
orthodontic treatment before they reach adolescence. As a
result, some orthodontists report that they are seeing 25%
more patients under the age of eleven than they did just a
few years ago. While problems with teeth and jaws may be
corrected at any age, there are some compelling reasons to
get an early jump on them. For one, because young grow-

ing bones are more pliable than older ones, and the teeth
more easily moved, they lend themselves to greater changes Licensed Specialist
in a shorter period of time. Early treatment may also reduce
the risk of relapse because teeth and bones that complete their growth under
treatment are set more solidly in their positions.

Every orthodontist's philosophy is a little different, but most agree that when
treatment is begun at an early age, teeth can be moved into their proper
positions more easily, with less physical discomfort for your child, and better
retention after the braces come off. Compliance may also be easier to obtain,
as younger patients are more anxious to cooperate depending upon maturity.
Additionally it seems that more children are having more permanent teeth
erupt at earlier ages than before. Of course having a nicer smile earlier also
contributes to a better self-image for the child.

Whether your child is ready for full braces at an earlier age can only be
determined on an individual basis and much depends upon their eruption
pattern and sequence. This is why orthodontists recommend a consultation
appointment to see what is best for your child.

If you have any questions please just call or write. The office is located on the
border of West Bloomfield/Commerce Township (360-7700).
