The foundation of effective parenting is leading by example. This is especially true when establishing good dental hygiene habits like brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist. An early orthodontic treatment may also be helpful in making extra room in the mouth for permanent teeth to be placed properly.
Depending on how severely your oral hygiene and health are affected by orthodontic problems, treatment time can vary from a few months to even years. This is why you should put in the time and effort to find the right orthodontist before starting treatment. This is the first and most important step towards a lifetime of better dental health!
