Early orthodontic treatment begins at an early age. It requires early diagnosis and early intervention. We advise preventive control at the age of 5! Sometimes it is necessary to start an early treatment with removable orthodontic appliance and then continue it with fixed brace treatment.
The first orthodontic phase, so-called early orthodontics, will do the following:
- Correct harmful oral habits
- Enable correct biting
- Guide the growth of the jaw bones that support the teeth so the teeth grow in straight and the jaw grows in the correct alignment
- Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
- Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
- Reducing treatment time with fixed braces
The second orthodontic phase will do the following:
- Move permanent teeth into their final positions
- Continue improving teeth function and facial appearance
Orthodontic problems that can be treated in a growing child may ease more drastic and invasive procedures that may be needed later.
