Why start treatment early?

Early treatment is only indicated where there is demonstrable benefit in intercepting a developing problem, that is the condition would worsen without intervention to the point where future treatment was compromised. An example of this would be an extreme bite problem which is amenable to corrective treatment at an early age but potentially difficult or impossible to treat when older. Please be assured that your Brisbane Orthodontics Orthodontist will not recommend early treatment unless there is a very good reason to do so.
