Abstract The need for orthodontic therapies in children is consistently increasing because of the greater attention parents pay to their children’s oral health. Nevertheless, since these therapies are expensive and often disturbing for the patients, it could be useful to prevent or reduce the risk of onset of these problems, which often arise because of a poor education towards oral hygiene. Pediatricians, which can observe children closer, should be trained to recognize promptly these problems, to suggest to the family the most appropriate interventional strategy.
