Geelong kids’ orthodontists in Newtown & Belmont

As parents, we want our children to be happy, healthy and confident – and we love nothing more than to see them smiling. While your child’s teeth and smile will go through a number of changes as they grow, there are instances where early orthodontic treatment can be beneficial, and can prevent more significant issues later in life.

Does my child need early orthodontic treatment?

If your dentist suspects trouble with your child’s bite, they may recommend orthodontic treatment as early as seven years of age. While braces are not appropriate for baby teeth, there are many orthodontic treatments that can prevent the need for braces and other corrective measures in adolescence and adulthood. Treating these issues early can prevent a number of problems in the future.

What are the benefits of early treatment orthodontics?

Early treatment orthodontics for malocclusions and bite problems can save a great deal of time and money in the future. There are many forms of early childhood orthodontic treatment, such as braces for kids and now early treatment with the Invisalign series of clear, removable aligners, which can help reduce the need for substantial orthodontic treatment in your child’s teenage years, if not eliminate the need entirely.

The key benefit of early treatment orthodontics is that it has the ability to rectify issues before they become a more expensive and time-consuming problem. Meeting with a kids’ orthodontist can help you understand your options.
