The biologicdi process involved in moving teeth is the same at any
age. Children and adults can both benefit from orthodontics. The
American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have
an exam at age 7 so that severe problems can be diagnosed early.
Most kids, however, begin full or comprehensive orthodontics between
ages 10 and 14 when -the majority of permanent teeth are erupted. It
is often beneficial to assist the final permanent teeth in coming into
their ideal arrangement by space planning. Treatment in adolescents
is also dynamic because facial growth influences the position of the
teeth and jaws- which usually enhances the treatment out come.
Because an adult's facial bones pre no longer growing, certain
corrections may not be accomplished with braces alone.
What Causes Orthodontic Problems?
Dr. Nelson Hersh
Dr. Marsha Betaligu
An orthodontic problem is called a malocclusion, meaning "bad bite".
Some examples of causes of malocclusion are crowded teeth, extra
teeth, improperly positioned teeth, eruption or sequence of eruption
that is unfavorable, missing teeth, or jaws that are out of alignment.
Most malocclusions, are inherited, although some can be acquired.
Acquired malocclusions can be caused by accidents, early or late
loss of baby teeth, or.sucking of the thumb or fingers for a prolonged
period of time. Inherited problems may be a combination of one
parent's teeth, the other parent's jaw size and even a grandparent's
relations of upper and lower jaws.
