Importance of Having the Right Bite!
Ideal occlusion is needed to prevent early wear, chipping, fractures or recession. The sooner a patient has treatment to correct their bite, the less likely they will see an impact on their mouth.Treating certain orthodontic issues early can also ensure that later orthodontic treatment will be much simpler or not needed at all. Drs. Schmidt & Sosath, as well as staff will monitor a patient’s bite from a young age and will suggest treatment at the most ideal time for the particular patient.
