  • When Should I Visit My Orthodontist in Bergen County

    Many parents in Bergen County have wondered if they should take their child to an orthodontist for a consultation.  Their child’s teeth may look crooked, but does that mean braces are in their child’s future?  Even adults themselves grapple with the question of “Do I Need Braces?”  The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) has put together a helpful list that outlines when you should call Dr. Mathew Milestones Orthodontics office to schedule an initial consultation.  Here are 12 warning signs indicating it’s time to check in with us:

    1. Early or late loss of baby teeth
    2. Teeth that meet in an abnormal way
    3. Mouth breathing
    4. Finger sucking or other oral habits
    5. Crowding, misplaced, or blocked-out teeth
    6. Jaws that shift, make sounds, protrude, or recede
    7. Speech difficulty
    8. Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth
    9. Protruding teeth
    10. Difficulty of chewing or biting
    11. Facial imbalance or asymmetry
    12. Grinding or clenching of teeth
