Your child’s first orthodontic review should occur at the age of eight years or sooner if there are specific concerns. Most orthodontic issues can be resolved during the growth and development phase of the teeth and jaws. Early detection leads to favourable treatment outcomes with predictable results.
Early orthodontic treatment can result in a less complex scenario when assessing patients in the teenage years for braces.
Some of the early childhood orthodontic and developmental issues we treat include sleep-disordered breathing, palatal growth guidance, space maintainers and early interceptive orthodontics.
Communicating with families through comprehensive treatment planning, digital imaging, interactive media and other resources, means we provide clear and valuable information to help you gain confidence in the course of your child’s treatment.
