Why Your Child Should Get An Orthodontic Check-up No Later Than Age 7:

Posted in: Dentistry, by thecourtyardclinic, on 21st March 2012 | Comments Off on Why Your Child Should Get An Orthodontic Check-up No Later Than Age 7:

• Dentists who understand early treatment orthodontics can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.

• While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only a dentist can detect.

• The check-up may reveal that your child’s bite is fine.

Or, the dentist (or orthodontist) may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring the child’s growth and development, and then if indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for the child. In other cases, there might be a problem that can benefit from early treatment.

• Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.

• In some cases, the orthodontist or dentist will be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

• Early treatment allows the opportunity to:

• guide jaw growth
• lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
• correct harmful oral habits
• improve appearance
• guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position • improve the way lips meet
• Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you’ll be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.

Because patients differ in both physiological development and treatment needs, the orthodontist’s goal is to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment at the most appropriate time.

It is one of the first things we notice when we meet someone for the first time, so it’s worth paying as much attention to your smile as you do to other aspects of your appearance.

We are an experienced dental team and are proud to deliver excellence, innovation and results that are second to none, using state of the art techniques in a practice dedicated to your comfort, wellbeing and most importantly, your smile.
