October in National Orthodontics Health Month. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends children be seen by the age 7 for Orthodontics evaluation.

American Association of Orthodontists Recommendation For Early Orthodontic Check-Ups

Why evaluate no later than age 7?

• The posterior occlusion is established when the first molars erupt. At that time, one can evaluate the antero-posterior and transverse relationships of the occlusion, as well as discover any functional shifts.

• Incisors have begun to erupt and problems can be detected such as crowding, habits, deep bites, open bites and some facial asymmetries.

• For some, a timely evaluation will lead to significant treatment benefits; for most, the principal immediate benefit is a parent’s peace of mind.

• The dentist who makes timely referrals is rightly regarded as informed, caring and concerned for the total well-being of the patient.

The Benefits of Early Treatment

For those patients who have clear indications for early intervention, early treatment presents the opportunity to:

• Influence jaw growth in a positive manner

• Harmonize width of the dental arches

• Improve eruption patterns

• Lower risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors

• Correct harmful oral habits

• Improve aesthetics and self-esteem

• Simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics

• Reduce likelihood of impacted permanent teeth

• Improve some speech problems

• Preserve or gain space for erupting permanent teeth

An early orthodontic evaluation can ease a parent’s concerns about crooked teeth or facial development and about orthodontic treatment. Some conditions are best treated early for biological, social or practical reasons, whereas others should be deferred. Final treatment decisions should be made among the parent, general dentist and orthodontist.

“Shining Star” Contest

Here at Dr. Gen Orthodontics we believe in promoting good oral hygiene. That is why we conduct a “Shining Star” contest all year long for all our patients. At your next visit to our office, just pick up a Shining Star card from any assistant or at the front desk. Then have your dentist or hygienist sign the card after receiving a great check-up. Bring the card back to our office at your next visit and drop it into our contest submission container located next to the front desk with the Shining Star card on it. We will randomly draw a luck winner each quarter. Winners will receive a new Kindle E-Reader. It’s that easy!
Our Second Quarter winner was: Nate B.
Congratulations to him and keep up the good work!
