In orthodontics, to always wait for young patients to get all of their adult teeth in is an old-fashioned approach. The cutting edge in orthodontics is to know when an early treatment option will best benefit the young patient and to provide that as an option. Parents and patients need to be aware of this option and the advantages it has.
