This paper aims to establish a theoretical approach to the problem of children’s neurotic disorders and their orthodontic effects. It will provide an overview of the literature on the definition of children’s neurotic disorders, summarizing specific approaches related to these disorders. The theoretical article also highlights and explains the main issues arising from orthodontic effects. The article will also explain some theoretical models that analyze specific neurotic disorders in children’s early life. The novelty of this article also mentions the forefront disorders such as bruxism, biting lips, sucking finger, which are related with psychological and psychiatric effects on the orthodontic development. In some cases, children aged up to 5 years are developing an anxiety related to changes that occur in the development of their organic, emotional and cognitive progress. I think it is useful to understand these concepts in interrelation with the orthodontic development and be aware of correlations between these growths and the adequacy of treatment.

Keywords: neurotic disorder, bruxism, orthodontist, anxiety
