When it comes to oral health, it’s always a good idea to lay out a good, solid foundation from which your child can build on for healthy and straight pearly whites for life.

This is why it’s important to keep a very close eye on your child’s teeth development with regular examinations with your local family dentist. This allows any issues to be treated or addressed before they can be real problems that are harder and costlier to repair when they are already adults.

One of these issues is orthodontics.

While you may think that braces are only for teens, children as early as 7 years old can get started correcting their teeth and bite. This is especially true if your child has been thumb sucking, or if they have baby teeth that are lost too soon or too late. Crowded and crooked teeth as well as overbites, under bites, and protruding teeth must also be addressed with braces.

With early orthodontic treatment by your trusted paediatric dentists, you have a better and faster chance of correcting bites and orthodontic issues. This is because children’s teeth are more flexible and the dentist can guide the growth of teeth along the jawbone, unlike later on in adulthood, when correcting this would require surgery and tooth extraction.

So if your child has been thumb sucking, has protruding teeth, over bite or under bite, lisp, or crooked teeth schedule a consultation with your dentist. Click here to find out more about getting braces for your child at Battery Hill Dental and schedule a consultation today.
