Children’s Orthodontics | Avenue Dental Sunshine Coast

The Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends that orthodontists should see children at around 7 years of age for their first orthodontic assessment.  This is because at this age adult molars and adult front teeth have usually erupted so orthodontic problems can be detected.

If orthodontic problems are detected early then early orthodontic treatment can potentially avoid later orthodontic treatment completely or at least make future orthodontic treatment easier.

At Avenue Dental Orthodontics we find that most children do not need orthodontic treatment at this age, however children’s orthodontic development can be monitored so that orthodontic treatment can be commenced at the best possible time for your child.
