It is a natural intention for parents that their children should have not only nice but well-proportioned and regular rows of teeth. In order to have a beautiful smile, it is recommended to consult an orthodontics specialist when the child is 5-7 years old as this is the age when a number of occlusal and other irregularities can be screened, which can be treated excellently by a removable appliance (or a fixed appliance as necessary).

Any occlusion irregularities can cause tooth overload and temporomandibular joint problems later on.
