When is it Time to Consider Taking Your Child to the Orthodontist?

Kids teeth

Most people recognize that crooked or crowded teeth indicate the need for orthodontic help. But how can you determine if your own child is due for a braces consultation? According to the American Association of Orthodontists, there are many early warning signs that your child may need to be examined by an orthodontist on your True Care plan. In honor of National Orthodontic Health Month in October, the following is a list of signs to look out for:

o Early or late loss of baby teeth
o Difficulty in chewing or biting
o Mouth breathing
o Thumb/finger sucking
o Misplaced or blocked-out teeth
o Jaws that shift or make sounds
o Biting the cheek
o Lower front teeth biting into the roof of the mouth
o Teeth that meet abnormally or not at all
o A crossbite
