Early Interceptive Orthodontics
At Beyond 32 Dental, our child-friendly team strives to provide your child with a positive dental experience by making visits both interactive and fun! We believe that prevention is better than cure which is why we recommend children visit us for regular 6 monthly check-ups as early as 2 years of age. Not only will this help foster a positive attitude towards coming to the dentist, regular attendance will help your child develop good oral hygiene habits that they can continue into adulthood.
Early Interceptive Orthodontics.
Orthodontics means moving teeth. But whats more important is the jaws, the foundation of all teeth. Why? If the position, shape, and size of the jaw is wrong, it will not only cause crooked teeth, but also have significant adverse effect on the airway and jaw joints. It is not uncommon to find kids (or even adults!) who suffer from obstructive airway experience excessive daytime sleepiness, poor concentration, decrease learning ability, bed wetting and the list goes on.
While age of 7 is the golden time for orthodontic assessment, we encourage all parents to bring your kids to our surgery as early as possible to identify any functional problems that affect jaw development. If treatment is required and started before they reach their growth spurt, we can guide the jaw development with oral appliances to make teeth straightening (if required) much easier later down the track. The days of “wait till all adult teeth comes out” is over!
