In addition, if you notice any of the following in your child, check with your orthodontist:

 

  • early or late loss of baby teeth
  • difficulty in chewing or biting
  • mouth breathing
  • jaws that shift or make sounds
  • speech difficulties
  • biting the check or the roof of the mouth
  • facial imbalance
  • grinding or clenching of the teeth.

 

Final treatment decisions should be made among the parent, child’s dentist and orthodontist.
