While your baby’s new teeth are key for chewing, speaking and appearance, they also hold space in the jaws for the next set of adult teeth. If your child loses a baby tooth before the permanent tooth is ready to erupt, a “space maintainer” may be recommended.

Early detection and treatment of dental alignment and jaw growth issues can benefit your child’s orthodontic care by favorably influencing jaw growth, creating more space for crowded teeth, and helping to correct harmful habits.

Human tooth development begins in the embryonic stage. It ends about 20 years later with the eruption of the permanent third molars or “wisdom teeth”.

If you’re considering orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child, schedule a consultation visit with an orthodontist. As a specialist with years of advanced training and specialized experience, orthodontists have a comprehensive knowledge of dental and facial development, as well as the expertise to correct poorly aligned teeth or jaw structure.

Thumb sucking is totally normal – up to 95% percent of infants suck their thumbs – and most children stop sucking their thumbs on their own between the ages of 2 and 4. But prolonged thumb sucking can affect children’s bite and jaw structure.

Many dental issues can affect the positions of your teeth and jaw - your bite may be off because of crowding, spacing, problems with jaw development, or the failure of certain teeth to erupt into their proper positions. These problems can usually be solved with proper orthodontic treatment.
