Most orthodontic treatment is carried out for children aged 10 years+, and once the permanent dentition is established Exceptions to this rule, when referral in the mixed dentition is appropriate, are:
- Anterior or posterior crossbites
- Asymmetry in the pattern of tooth eruption (e.g. a lateral incisor erupts before a central)
- Molars of Poor Prognosis (seek opinion before extracting)
- Lack of palpable canine bulges buccally (age 10+)
- Supernumerary teeth
- Submerging deciduous molars
- Impacted teeth
Otherwise, please delay referral until the first premolars have erupted.
