Children’s Dental Treatment For Straighter Teeth For Young Patients Near Kew

17-12-2013

Where your teeth are concerned, sooner is better than later, prevention is preferable to cure, and an early visit to the dentist is always the best option. With time being of the essence, it’s important to give your children’s teeth a valuable head start. According to the American Association of Orthodontics, it’s best to bring your child in for an assessment by the time they turn seven, and this is the stance we take at Sparkle Dental Boutique near Kew. Around this time, children still have some of their milk teeth as well as new permanent teeth, and emerging orthodontic problems can be easily spotted and rectified. An ‘interceptive’ approach to braces can really make a difference to your child’s dental future.

Catching problems early

The mouth of a seven year old can contain any of a number of early problems:

  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Teeth sticking out excessively
  • Too many or too few teeth
  • Problems with the growth of the jaw, including ‘bad bite’

These issues are natural occurrences, but other problems can result from a variety of factors:

  • Thumb sucking
  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Swallowing abnormally
  • Bad hygiene
  • Poor nutrition
  • Milk teeth being lost at the wrong time
  • Accidents
  • Disease of the teeth or gums

Planning for the future

By intervening early, our dentists can easily correct these complications before they get any worse. Dr Saba Qureshi, our Specialist Orthodontist, has considerable experience and knowledge of children’s teeth. She’s an expert in braces and can make sure your child’s introduction to orthodontic care is a happy one. Interceptive braces can start your child off on the road to healthy straight teeth throughout their life.
