Early examination is important and will allow your dentist to detect any developmental problems and plan appropriate treatment. These can be diagnosed form roughly the age of 7 when most of the adult front teeth have erupted. Early intervention can minimise or even eliminate the need for tooth extraction and reduce the time required for treatment later.
