Most dental practices are not in the habit of checking a child’s teeth from an early age to spot the signs of misalignment. This means orthodontic problems that could be corrected easily are left to develop, after which they will require more extensive treatment.
At Sparkle Dental Boutique near Brentford however, we carry out orthodontic assessment on children from the age of 7 and use interceptive braces on those who may develop tooth misalignment in the future.
What are the causes of tooth misalignment?
There are a number of reasons for why adult teeth come through crooked, which may include whether the child had a dummy for a prolonged period of time, whether they suffered premature tooth loss or were prone to mouth breathing from a young age. Dental disease can also play their role in the development of the adult teeth and any oral health diseases will needed to be treated first before interceptive braces can be fitted.
At Sparkle Dental Boutique our Specialist Orthodontist has the qualifications and skill to correct children’s tooth misalignment and create straighter smiles, which will improve your child’s oral health and general self-esteem.
What problems can interceptive braces treat?
Interceptive braces can be used to treat a whole range of orthodontic problems, including gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth and general misalignment.
Straightening your child’s teeth now will mean they do not have to undergo orthodontic treatment later on in their adolescent or adults years, which can save them feelings of awkwardness and embarrassment.
If you are interested in interceptive braces for your own child please call the practice today. We are based near Brentford, but also provide treatment for patients throughout London and the UK.
