How children’s orthodontics can be beneficial

Instyle Orthodontics on the Sunshine Coast can help you to establish your child’s dental health at an early age using orthodontics for children

Orthodontics for children can go a long way to securing your child’s dental health in the future, and here at Instyle Orthodontics on the Sunshine Coast we can help them achieve that. We are passionate about safeguarding our young patients’ dental health and we do so by delving deep into their situation and making a thorough initial assessment. Our aim will always be to provide you and your family with the highest standards of care, in an environment that is both compassionate and professional. This, of course, extends to our range of Orthodontics for children, and as we monitor your child’s progression, we can alter and adapt to their changing situation, giving them a head start on their development.

Orthodontic transformations can be dramatic and are able to vastly improve the form and function of your teeth, bite and jaw. A straight smile is a healthy smile, and by using the very latest techniques and digital imaging technologies, we ensure that your child receives the ideal treatment solution. The Instyle Orthodontics team is always hungry to expand their knowledge. It is this insatiable thirst for new ideas and technologies that set us apart from so many other practices.

Why can early assessment be important?

During your child’s earlier stages of development, their oral condition is at its most pliable and provides an opportunity to address any orthodontic concerns before they become an issue. Orthodontics for children can also be used simply to ensure that your child’s teeth are straight and act as a preventative measure for any problems that may occur down the line. By making an early diagnosis of your child’s teeth and gums, we can gain a better understanding of the necessary treatment. There are a whole host of benefits to be had from Orthodontics for children. Aside from being able to guide their adult teeth into their ideal position, they can address damaging dental habits, possibly prevent the need for extractions of misplaced teeth and create room in your child’s mouth for optimal shifting of their teeth. Not only this, it may simplify any orthodontic treatments later in life should they be required. We normally recommend that you bring your child in at around 8 years old so that we can identify their orthodontic needs and to start treatment that will optimise their results. Orthodontics for children can even potentially minimise the treatment time and maximise its efficacy.

Their first orthodontic visit

Your child might experience some anxiety about their first trip to the orthodontist. This is totally natural, and something we all went through as a child, but is something that we are trying to change. We have always been a family orientated practice and we strive to create an environment that is relaxed, comfortable and puts your child at ease. Upon their first visit to their orthodontist, young patients will have their existing tooth structure assessed before examining the development of their jawbone and the structure of their smile. When it comes to orthodontics for children, early interception means that we may be able to reduce the complexity of future Orthodontic treatments as well as the severity of any concerns that are still yet to occur. Exploring Orthodontic treatments for children is one the best things you can do to give your child a huge advantage in their lives with regards to dental health.
