One of the most frequent and common questions asked by mothers is, What is the best age to start Orthodontic treatment ? Is it at a young age of 8 years when the child still have half of their baby teeth or is it at a later stage as a teenager (13-16 yrs) when all their adult teeth have erupted.
Proper oral hygiene techniques are necessary to reduce and eliminate tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease. Knowing when to floss, when to brush and when to use the tongue scraper is necessary.
In continuation of my posts, am touching on a topic which is very close to me and have seen many children and adults affected by it and remains untreated due to lack of information.
If your child requires Orthodontic Treatment, it may be worth getting seen to sooner rather than later. Early treatment acts as a preventative measure to ensure children have healthy teeth and gums.
