Some of my children’s friends have already started treatment, but our orthodontist says my child should wait. Why is there a difference in treatment?
Each treatment plan is specific for that child and his/her specific problem as well as his/her growth and development. Children mature at different stages and interceptive treatment is indicated to prevent a more severe problem from occurring. Your orthodontist is the best person to decide the best type of treatment and its timing. If you have questions, you should discuss them with your orthodontist.
