Orthodontics for Children
At The AIDER we provide interceptice (early) orthodontic treatment for children.
An early orthodontic evaluation of every child (no later than age 7) is recommended by The Australian Society of Orthodontics.
The early evaluation is very important as it may prevent more serious problems later.
In many cases, an early orthodontic treatment is not necessary. However, an early evaluation enables the careful monitoring of the growth and development of the child.
What are the goals for an Interceptive treatment?
- Creating room for crowded teeth
- Preserve space for the unerupted, permanent teeth
- Elimination of crossbites
- Improving some speech problems
- Improving self-esteem
