What is orthodontic – orthopedic treatment?
Orthodontic – Orthopedic (dentofacial – orthopedics) aims at dealing with asymmetry and is implemented during skeletal growth.
What are the advantages of early orthodontic treatment?
When is the appropriate time to start the treatment?
According to the American Association of Orthodontics and the European Orthodontic Society every child must be examined by a specialized orthodontist by the age of 7, who will judge if a problem exists or not and when is the right time to deal with it.
The opinion that all permanent teeth must first come out before the beginning of any orthodontic treatment is scientifically insufficient and baseless.
