Signs of misaligned teeth may show at a very young age in children. Our team in Manchester, Connecticut, can help determine whether your child needs orthodontic treatment. Indications that your child may need an orthodontic consult include the following:

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • A hard time chewing or biting food
  • Mouth breathing
  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Crowded, misplaced or blocked teeth
  • Jaws that pop or make sounds when opening and closing
  • Teeth that come together abnormally or do not come together at all
  • Jaws and teeth that are not proportionate to the rest of the face
  • Crowded front teeth around age 7 or 8
