Why Should I Get an Orthodontic Assessment?

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Star Orthodontics
Why Should I Get an Orthodontic Assessment?An orthodontic assessment aims to record and examine a patient's occlusion that needs to be carried out. Moreover, it is done before the patient's treatment to ensure an accurate treatment tailored for them. It may help determine if a patient has a skeletal discrepancy that is needed to be treated, or perhaps to avoid mishaps while the treatment plan is ongoing.

An essential aspect of orthodontic treatment is patient assessment. With this process, the patient will be able to get his oral ailment treated adequately. Some treatments may include an intensive plan as other sub-treatments are irreversible, such as tooth extractions.

The Right Time to Get an Orthodontic Assessment

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), a regular check-up every 4-6 months is important in order to maintain good oral health and hygiene. For children ages 0-7, an orthodontic assessment should commence no later than seven years old. We can help detect early oral problems regarding mandible and maxilla jaw, which might affect the position and growth of posterior and anterior teeth. Moreover, an early assessment may help prevent more serious oral health and jaw problems.

An early assessment of the oral health of your child has numerous benefits. For instance, it can help treat early jaw problems. It can also help correct oral habits that may be harmful. Our professionals will provide proper guidance of permanent teeth during the appointment, and it can also improve the overall appearance in terms of bite and alignment of teeth

If your child is ready for an orthodontist assessment, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment with us. We will be happy to guide you through the whole process.
