Prevention Now…or Braces LaterA lot of us recall the embarrassment and challenge of wearing braces as a child. There are times when braces are necessary in order to correct serious malocclusion (bite disorder). However, for many patients, early treatment by a qualified and knowledgeable dentist can diminish the level of orthodontics required or very possibly remove the need altogether!
Younger children have the benefit of growth to their advantage. Their teeth and bones are more malleable than those of adults. Understanding that a child has a malocclusion at an early age can assist in understanding how the permanent teeth will come together. The sooner the detection, the more planning and prevention we can propose for your child.
