Orthodontia plays a crucial role in improving the dental health and overall well-being of children. But where do you start? There’s a lot to know about orthodontia and even more about how to make sure your family is covered.

Here are a few common orthodontic issues in children that are important to be aware of:

  • Overcrowded Teeth: This occurs when there is insufficient space for permanent teeth to emerge properly, leading to misalignment.
  • Malocclusion: Also known as a bad bite, malocclusion refers to misalignment between the upper and lower teeth, leading to difficulty in chewing and speaking.
  • Crossbite: This condition arises when the upper and lower teeth, or often the jaws themselves, are misaligned, causing some upper teeth to bite inside the lower teeth.

Early intervention and regular check-ups can help identify and address potential problems, leading to more effective and efficient orthodontic procedures.
