Children’s Treatment at ORTHODONTIX


The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) recommends kids see an orthodontist between the ages of six and eight. Treatments to correct jaw growth and certain bite problems, such as underbite have better outcomes when detected early. Solutions such as making room for permanent teeth to come in properly will lessen the chance of future extractions.


WHY GET EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT?


Some children present early signs of minor orthodontic irregularities. These are often a case of monitoring the situation over time, possibly without intervention.

However, for children who display more severe orthodontic irregularities, early orthodontic treatment can provide many benefits, including reducing the risk of:

  • Bruxing
  • childhood cavities
  • periodontal disease
  • speech problems

SIGNS YOUR CHILD MAY NEED EARLY ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT


Early or late loss of baby teeth (your child should typically start losing teeth around age five and will have all permanent teeth around age 13).


Difficulty chewing; Openbite, overbite, crossbite, underbite.


Your child continues sucking his or her thumb after age five.



Speech impediments from protruding teeth (the top teeth and the bottom teeth extend away from each other).


Teeth that don’t come together in a normal manner or even at all.


Shifting of the jaw when your child opens or closes his or her mouth (crossbites).
