Timing of early treatment

1. Better prognosis of avoiding extraction of permanent teeth.
2. Better guidance of skeletal problems, since the orthodontist can control and guide the skeletal development prior to the onset of puberty.
3. Better tissue response to treatment.
4. Better adaptation of the young patients to the appliances and better cooperation
5. Practically easier treatment, since elementary school children have fewer obligations that those of high school.
6. Younger children don't feel embarrassed and generally they don't have the psychological issues of adolescents.
7. When the treatment starts early, it is almost finished by the time the child enters puberty and they have more self-esteem as teenagers because of their improved facial esthetics.
8. Adult patients whose skeletal development is completed, have extractions of permanent teeth more often or when they have severe skeletal problems occasionally require orthognathic surgery.
