Did you know that every child should receive an orthodontic evaluation at each periodic dental exam to assess their dental and jaw growth and development? As early and frequent as this may seem, it is vital to properly manage tooth eruption patterns, occlusion, and spacing or crowding issues.
It is important to monitor growth and development so an orthodontic referral can be given at the appropriate time if necessary. Some orthodontic issues can be treated when a child’s jaws still have growth potential. For information on how Dr. Christine Wang can prevent orthodontic issues, stop by Redmond Ridge Pediatric Dentistry to meet with our dentist.
