The Benefits of Early Treatment and Interceptive Orthodontics

The Australian Society of Children’s Orthodontists recommends that children should have their first orthodontic visit when they are 7 years of age. This is the time when the permanent molars are coming in and their bite has been established.

When children see the orthodontist at an early age, the growth of the jaw can be monitored and guided to promote proper teeth alignment while avoiding future problems. Even if your child doesn’t need treatment yet, early visits help the Orthodontist become familiar with your child, making it easier to monitor and catch issues early.

Overall early treatment provides a host of benefits including helping your child become familiar with the orthodontist, which means if problems arise, your child is more confident to address them. The following are just some of the benefits of early orthodontic treatments:

Some Signs Your Child May Require Orthodontic Treatment

Some Signs Your Child May Require Orthodontic Treatment - Brisbane, Fortitude Valley & Albany Creek - Allstar Orthodontics
While not all parents will bring their children in for early treatment, or if your child is well over 7 years old, you can still take advantage of orthodontic treatments. Children and teenagers respond well to treatment and children are more accepting of orthodontics thanks to social media. The following are some signs that may indicate your child needs orthodontic treatment:

Children and teenagers respond well to treatment and children are more accepting of orthodontics thanks to social media.

The following are some signs that may indicate your child needs orthodontic treatment:

\
Difficulty chewing
\
Continued mouth breathing
\
Speech issues
\
Thumb sucking in children older than six years
\
Protruding teeth
\
Teeth that are high up in the gum area
\
Very crowded teeth
\
Abnormal bite or top and bottom teeth that don’t seem to fit quite right
\
Jaw shifting when opening or closing mouth
Orthodontic problems may arise from a number of factors including heredity and habits. Many orthodontists agree that early treatment or intervention is ideal to correct problems, because during the teen years the jaw starts to grow less and some problems become more difficult to correct. Orthodontics after this age may require more extensive treatments including tooth extractions or jaw surgery.

Early Treatments at Allstar Orthodontics in Brisbane Queensland, Fortitude Valley and Albany Creek

Our interceptive orthodontic treatments are only used if it would benefit your child. Our Orthodontists are skilled and experienced working with younger patients and enjoy helping them learn about oral health care. If your child does need interceptive treatment, we may use the following:

Invisalign First

This early treatment system utilises a series of customised aligners that fit snugly over your child’s teeth. They are designed to assist the development of your child’s dental arch, which can help create more space as their teeth grow in while avoiding crowded teeth. The aligners are removable so your child can clean their teeth and remove the aligners with ease.

This product is not available for purchase by the general public.

Braces for Children

For complex cases, we may utilise partial braces on younger children to help begin the alignment process. This can prevent more complicated future treatments and help them eat without problems.
