Early Orthodontic Treatment in Mulgrave

Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they are found and treated early, these might include:

  • Underbites – when the lower front teeth are ahead of the upper front teeth
  • Crossbites – when the jaw shifts to one side
  • Very crowded teeth
  • Excessively spaced teeth
  • Extra or missing teeth
  • Teeth meet abnormally or do not meet at all
  • Thumb-, finger-, or pacifier- sucking that is affecting the teeth or jaw growth

The goal of early treatment is to intercept the developing problem, eliminate the cause, guide the growth of facial and jaw bones, and provide adequate space for incoming permanent teeth.

Waiting until all the permanent teeth have come in, or until facial growth is nearly complete, may make correction of some problems more difficult.
