Maxillary orthopedics consists of correcting irregularities of children’s teeth when they are in the growth stage. Once that stage is finished, this specialty can no longer be used.
A series of studies must be done to determine the position of teeth so we can diagnose the child's dental situation.
Although the age may vary according to each patient’s case, 6 years or older is an ideal age to consider a maxillary orthopedics consultation.
Family history is a factor, given that a child may have a small jaw and several large teeth, which may lead to malpositioned or crowded teeth.
