Beneath the surface


Parents are often the first to recognize that something isn’t quite right about their child’s teeth or jaws. You may notice your child’s teeth not fitting together, difficulty chewing or biting, mouth breathing or other issues. When you notice something, it’s time to get it checked out. Sometimes it’s more than meets the eye. Two-thirds of what goes on in the mouth happens below the surface. Your child may have impacted canines, preventing adult teeth from erupting properly. Let us take a look and see what is happening below the surface with an x-ray.  The AAO suggests children be seen by an Orthodontist at age 7.
