Growth & Development Evaluation

At Rivers Edge Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, we understand the importance of monitoring children's growth and development to ensure they receive the best possible dental care. That's why we offer specialized Growth & Development Evaluations to assess the development of your child's smile.

What we look for in orthodontic evaluations

  1. Bite alignment: We assess whether the upper and lower teeth meet correctly and if there is an overbite or underbite.
  2. Tooth crowding: We look for any signs of overcrowding or overlapping of the teeth.
  3. Jaw alignment: We assess the position and alignment of the jaw and determine if any misalignments could affect the bite.
  4. Development of adult teeth: We monitor the development of adult teeth and check for any crowding or spacing issues.
  5. Crossbites: We check for any crossbites, which occur when the upper and lower jaws don't meet correctly.
  6. Lip and tongue function: We assess how well the lips and tongue function and check for any issues that could impact dental health.

What age should I consider a growth & development evaluation for my child?

It's recommended that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. This allows us to identify any potential issues early on and start treatment when it is most effective.

What are the benefits of early detection of dental issues for my child?

Early detection of orthodontic issues is key to effective treatment. If we identify any potential concerns during your child's evaluation, we will provide you with a personalized treatment plan to help address the issue and prevent further problems from developing.
