When should treatment begin?
Age can impact a number of different issues within the mouth and we generally recommend that you see an orthodontist as early as possible. This does not necessarily mean treatment will commence immediately; however, getting a professional orthodontic specialist opinion from observing the developing teeth will ensure the best possible treatment when the time comes.
Do all baby teeth need to be lost before treatment?
Definitely not. Quite often it is beneficial to commence treatment prior to the loss of all baby teeth, to make space for the permanent teeth to erupt into better positions. This early intervention will minimise the need for more extensive treatment later on.
What investment will be required?
You can minimise expenses by starting your child's treatment at the optimal time. Finding the optimal time for treatment requires recurring observation to assess when the teeth and jaws are ready for growth.
Smiling Wide Orthodontics facilitates early detection, by not charging for the initial specialist orthodontic consultation. Any observation checks required prior to active treatment are also provided at no extra charge—even if this is over a few years. Contact us
