As they say – “A chip off the old block.” When it comes to teeth, this is so true! While it’s true that the health of our teeth gets better with each generation (think: grandma with false teeth), our susceptibility to dental crowding or destructive bite patterns doesn’t change. This is genetically determined and passed down to our children. It’s likely they will get some crooked teeth.
That is why it is so important to see a Specialist Orthodontist by the time your child gets to nine years of age. At this age, we can usually predict if your kids will have orthodontic problems.
