When do you know if children will display future crowding? The intercanine archlength in most children is established by age 6 and almost always by age 8. Parents many time think that an early orthodontic evaluation is not necessary at age 7 since they will "surely grow more room over the next few years." The arches enlarge for posterior tooth eruption but not anteriorly after that early age.
