Orthodontic problems that should have been diagnosed yesterday!

Orthodontic problems that should have been diagnosed yesterday for more effective results. This happens when they have milk teeth

Most children have orthodontic problems that if they are diagnosed early, the results are more effective.


So, if when you look at your child and notice a prominent chin or the part of the face below the nose too recessed it could be a sign that they need to wear braces.

Thus, another way to diagnose it will be to look at the way he bites. But if the lower front teeth are in front of the upper teeth when he bites, he is facing this change in bone/dental growth.


More difficult to diagnose than the previous one, they can be seen, when your child bites and we look at the teeth, finding that the lower ones stick out of the upper ones. This usually occurs in patients with respiratory problems (allergies). And, so braces that expand the palate are needed.


When your child bites and the upper teeth do not contact the lower teeth we are faced with an open bite. This bite, if treated early, can be corrected with braces. However, in adults and with growth completed, it becomes almost impossible.


However, when the tongue muscles and the cheek muscles are not in tune there is a change in the dental positions. Because these changes either by incorrect positioning of the tongue when placing the lower lip between the teeth or the simple fact of sucking on the finger can lead to bone and dental changes. If diagnosed late, they can lead to changes that cannot be reversed with braces.

In conclusion, for these reasons mentioned above, the first visit to the Orthodontist should be when the child is between 6 and 7 years old. This is when they still have milk teeth and the bones are still growing and not when they already have all the definitive teeth.

There are children who will have to wait for definitive teeth to start treatment, but always on the recommendation of the Orthodontist and not by default.
