Orthodontics For Children


Premature loss or decay of a primary tooth can result in a deficiency in the amount of space available for the permanent teeth. A space maintainer is important to hold or keep this space open for the permanent teeth and to help guide them into position.
The usual goal for an orthodontist to start a child’s treatment at an early age is to guide the growth of jaw bones and create the optimum environment for the eruption of permanent teeth. This may prevent the development of more serious problems in the future and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.Interceptive orthodontic treatment may also be useful when the dental arches and jaws are not in the correct position. Certain types of functional (growth) appliances may fix or improve these problems.
Dental or skeletal problems which can not be resolved with these technics until the age of 11-12, may be treated with fixed braces. Metal, coloured or ceramic braces can be used.
