ORTHODONTICS BEFORE THE AGE 8

Early orthodontic treatment can be simpler,
shorter and more favorable
than treating at a later age.

(SOURCE: The Bulletin of Tokyo Dental College--1995)

Orthodontics at age 8 can be too late for some children because the jaws are mostly grown by age 6---about 80% grown. That is why some children need orthodontic treatments as early as age 2 to help make room for their larger adult teeth and reduce the need for extractions. Active FJO treatment at age 2 to 6 can more successfully influence tooth, jaw and airway growth.

If you have young children, find an FJO dentist to examine their jaws and bite to be sure teeth and bones are developing and aligning well.
