    An excellent and timely presentation. I will definitely use this video in my orthodontic practice, since many of the children we see for their initial”free” orthodontic consultation are between 4 and 7 years of age. I see approximately 800 children a year for preventive and / or interceptive orthodontic treatment, of which 50 or so will eventually require comprehensive treatment (with braces), by the the “biological/dental” (not the chronological/birthdate) age of 10. ie when the root of the canine is equal in length to the clinical crown, on a conventional panoramic radiograph, or when the canine measures 20 mm on a digital pan.
    As an addendum to your your video I would change the “male” only inferences to “he/she”, his/hers, or try to imply neutral and/or unisex. Finally, I strongly believe that all parents should be aware, that milk, when it is ingested, adds calcium/strength to growing bones and teeth, however, when it is left remaining as a residue around the necks (gingival margins)of the teeth, it becomes a liability and is detrimental to dental enamel integrity, because it becomes transformed into a very invasive and degrading form of lactic acid, within 20 minutes, by the oral fluids, if not brushed away or neutralized with water rinses. Also, keep in mind that the sweetest foods, turn into the strongest acids (pyruvic/ hydrochloric) when enzymes from the oral fluids start acting upon them, again, within 20 minutes of ingestion. Children’s teeth, both deciduous and permanent, are more susceptible to decalcification, staining, and caries, because the enamel is more porous, the root canals are larger,and the teeth have not had the accumulative positive effect of natural and/or applied fluoride protection.
