This was very informative, we were contemplating on whether to treat her with braces at such an early age, she has overlaping teeth along with teeth jetting outward, she is 8 years old and now we can plan on taking her to an orthodontist as also suggested by my family doctor. Thank you Dr. Sonali for your article

Orthodontic treatment can be started before milk teeth fall sometimes in case we are giving some kind of appliance to the patient. The appliance could be for bite opening or habit breaking .so sometimes we can start treatment as early as approx 9 - 10 years subjective to the case.

We should apply home made ghee on the gums instead of any other medication.

Can we start dental treatments before the milk teeth (esp the canines and premolars) have fallen off?

My kids have been regularly monitored by our dentist and an orthodontist on whose advice periodic extraction of teeth has led to a relatively shorter duration of wearing braces.
