Early Orthodontics For Your Child
Early orthodontics improves a misaligned bite and enhances dental function, minimizing any oral difficulties before they become significant ones. Since many of us do not naturally have perfectly straight teeth, starting treatment early on can help you avoid having to undergo costly restorative operations. We want parents and their children to understand the importance of initiating orthodontic work while the problems are still easily corrected.
Correcting a misaligned bite
By determining the symptoms of a future issue by the age of seven, our team helps your child avoid the progression of bite misalignment. Herbst appliances can manipulate a young patient’s bite into the proper position. This aids in the development of their teeth by avoiding invasive surgeries later in life.
After the end of orthodontic treatment, our orthodontist may offer your child fixed retainers to stop relapse from occurring.
The shape of a child’s jaw is an essential element of their developing smile. Early orthodontic care is beneficial because of young patients’ pliable jawbone and palate, allowing for non-invasive extension. Guided palate development creates the optimum amount of room for adult teeth, minimizing the need for major smile correction in the future.
When there is not enough room for the permanent teeth to fully erupt, crowding and discomfort are frequently the results. When a patient waits too long to receive treatment for palate modification, the jaw may have already set and the teeth may be crowded, necessitating extraction.
While many children do not find it ideal to have metal wires and brackets in their smiles, advancements in dental technologies allow braces to be more customizable. The bright bands holding the wires in place allow your child to express themselves. Our dental office has a wide variety of colors, so children can feel more confident wearing metal braces.
