Early Treatment

orthodontics-footscray-crooked-health-straight-teethAlthough orthodontic treatment can be performed at any age, it is recommended to have an initial orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7.  This is the ideal time to detect the following: crossbite, openbite, overbite, overjet, underbite, impacted teeth, missing teeth and lack of space for developing adult teeth.

Early detection can help your child maintain a brilliant, healthy smile.  Monitoring the dental structure at an early age can provide a better chance of preventing serious problems later. Dr. Varughese will carefully evaluate the teeth, guide growth and development, and suggest any necessary treatment. However, because your child’s progress has been followed, treatment may be less extensive than when left unmonitored.

Some of the benefits of early treatment include:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Creating facial symmetry by influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  • Reducing treatment time with braces
