Facts about early treatment options for 8-10 year olds:

  • A typical 8-10 year old may still have 12 baby teeth
  • Sometimes the baby teeth are stuck and can interfere with the permanent teeth erupting on schedule
  • Sometimes the permanent teeth erupt into the wrong path or position
  • Your family dentist may rely on an orthodontist, such as Dr. Steckel, to check these developmental problems
