Early reviews allow us to detect bone and dental eruption pathologies on time, as between 4 and 7 years of age, we can influence the skeletal, muscular, and dental development of the child, facing problems caused by bad habits (thumb-sucking), hereditary, skeletal or functional alterations.
The best age to go to the dentist for a revision of dental malpositions in children is 6 years old when the first permanent molars have already come out, or they are about to complete their eruption.
Controlling the first permanent molars is important because, depending on the position they occupy in the dental arch, they will condition the biting shape that your child will have when they grow up.
We can improve the position of the jaw, the bite (cross, open, overbite, etc.), and dental crowding through interceptive orthodontics.
