Dr. Monica Dosanjh

Specialist in Orthodontics

Treatment in Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends visiting an orthodontist at the age of 7. This is the ideal age for the orthodontist to catch subtle problems in tooth and jaw discrepancy.

Early Treatment Allows Your Orthodontist to:

  • Create space for crowded teeth
  • Correct teeth going into crossbite
  • Avoid teeth from coming into the wrong place or putting the tooth into the right place
  • Correct a parafunctional habit like finger-sucking (this can cause dental and skeletal problems if it continues past a certain age)
  • Correct the growth of the jaw to prevent surgery later
  • Prevent the need for extractions of permanent teeth later
