Orthodontic Treatments

Sometimes, children's teeth may erupt misaligned due to genetics or habits like thumb-sucking. In such cases, early orthodontic treatments can be crucial for guiding proper jaw and tooth development.

 

During routine examinations, if structural or skeletal irregularities concerning the mouth and jaw are detected, early intervention planning becomes crucial. Parents are then informed about the potential need for preventive orthodontic measures, and if warranted, aligners and other orthodontic treatments can be recommended as part of a tailored treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions About Orthodontic Treatments

What are Preventive Orthodontic Measures?

Early intervention in orthodontics involves addressing minor tooth misalignment or jaw discrepancies while your child's facial bones are still growing. This proactive approach can prevent the need for more complex orthodontic treatments later in life. At KidsDent, we understand the importance of proactive dental care for children. That's why we offer early orthodontic interventions, a crucial step in fostering optimal development of your child's teeth and jaw structure.

What is Clear Aligner?

Clear aligners offer a comfortable and discreet solution for children with misaligned teeth.  Custom-crafted clear aligners are worn and replaced at regular intervals. Each aligner guides the teeth toward precise alignment. This innovative method ensures a gradual refinement of dental alignment, promoting both functionality and aesthetics. Aligners are practically invisible, so your child can straighten their smile with minimal disruption to their daily activities.

What are the Benefits of Clear Aligners?

  • Virtually Invisible: Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are practically invisible.

  • Removable for Easy Cleaning: Maintaining good oral hygiene is a breeze! Simply remove the aligners to brush, floss, and eat without any restrictions.

 

What Causes Orthodontic Problems?

Some of the common causes of orthodontic problems: 

  • Family History (Genetics): If orthodontic issues like crowded teeth or gaps were common in your family, you might be more predisposed to experiencing them yourself.

  • Habits: Persistent habits like thumb sucking or using a pacifier for too long can put pressure on the teeth and jaw, affecting their development and alignment.

  • Early Tooth Loss: If primary teeth are lost too early due to decay, trauma, or improper extraction, it can disrupt the natural spacing for permanent teeth to erupt properly. This can lead to crowding or misalignment.
