Childrens & Teens Orthodontics
Some orthodontic problems may be treated early, while the child’s baby teeth are still present. Early diagnosis and treatment may help prevent orthodontic problems from developing, or more serious problems from getting worse. Early treatment can help to normalise the development of the teeth and face.
Whilst some orthodontic problems may benefit from early treatment, most orthodontics is undertaken once the permanent teeth have erupted into the mouth, usually by the age of 11- 12 years. This enables the orthodontist to precisely position every tooth as much as possible, giving you a dazzling smile and a comfortable, even bite.
