A well-informed parent means a healthier child
It is important for a child to have well-aligned teeth right from the moment his first tooth comes through. Any potential dental issues can be caught early on, as well as corrected in good time, so that the child becomes a well-developed adolescent, and a self-confident adult later on.
As a parent you want your child to chew properly and have a good diction. We will help you understand the signs that may indicate the need for dental braces or any other type of orthodontic surgery, from an early age. Through the courses and workshops dedicated to parents we provide you with relevant useful information and methods of prevention, we teach exercises that can be done by kids and explain how you can help your child during the orthodontic treatment.
Frequently asked questions
At what age should a child go to the dentist?
The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that after one year of age, the child should be taken to the dentist to find out exactly how to care for his or her teeth.
For the first visit to the orthodontic, it is recommended the age of 7, so that any problems can be corrected early, easily, without high costs.
Why would my child need orthodontics?
For two main reasons. An aesthetic one and a functional one. A healthy tooth looks good and increases self-confidence. Solving teeth issues helps the general well-being: the child will bite very well, breathe smoothly, have a good posture.
How do I figure out my child is having teeth problems?
There are visible problems: clenched or gnashed teeth or large spaces between them. But, also more difficult problems to notice: the child frequently bites his cheek, has difficulty speaking, and sucks his fingers even after he turns 3 or 4 years old.
Do braces cause pain?
In a few cases, there are patients who have a feeling of discomfort and minor pain, in the first days after putting in the braces.
How often should the child return to the clinic during treatment?
It depends on the case, but the frequency of visits is 4-10 weeks on average.
Is orthodontic treatment expensive?
The costs differ from case to case, but it is a long-term investment regardless of their value. If done on time, orthodontic work is cheaper and saves you from other further medical expenses.
