The Spanish Association of Specialists in Orthodontics, recommends that all children should have an orthodontic check-up with a specialist from 5 years old
At this age the first permanent teeth appear and we can detect incipient problems both in the teeth and in the development of the palate. A first evaluation will allow us to make decisions choosing the best treatment and starting moment if there is any alteration.
Knowing when to start an orthodontics treatment simplifies our work and achieves better results with less effort for the little ones. An early action, when necessary, offers a complete control of the mouth and allows us to participate in its development (not just moving teeth once they've reached maturity).
