Can children start orthodontic treatment when their baby teeth are in the mouth?


The health of deciduous teeth is very important for nutrition, speech and aesthetics, as well as for guiding the permanent teeth.

If necessary, the orthodontist may decide to start orthodontic treatment even when all the baby teeth are in the mouth. The aim of early treatment is to create a healthy environment for the permanent teeth, rather than to improve the appearance of the baby teeth.
