Orthodontic treatment for children at our clinic in Marylebone
Orthodontic treatment focuses on improving the appearance and functionality of an individual’s teeth. For children, in order to identify any dental problems as soon as possible, it is important for children to be seen by an orthodontist for an assessment around the age of 7.
It is said that about a third of children need orthodontic treatment, so if you have a child and are concerned about their teeth, by having an assessment made early by Mary Lo, she will be able to identify if your child has problems related with their teeth or their jaw. If identified early enough, it may be recommended that your child starts orthodontic treatment as soon as possible or alternatively, your child’s growth pattern will be monitored and it may be decided for your child to undergo orthodontic treatment later on. In certain cases, it is advised for a child to start treatment before all of their adult teeth have erupted; known as interceptive treatment.
Interceptive orthodontic treatment is used to treat dental issues such as underbites, crowded teeth, overbites and jaw deformities in child patients. Once a child’s adult teeth come through, the orthodontist will then commence treatment to correct the teeth which require it. By diagnosing dental problems in a child as early as possible, the risk of a child developing dental issues as they get older is reduced in complexity or corrected. Other early treatment options an orthodontist may consider for a child patient includes creating more space for crowded teeth and guiding adult teeth into a more desired position.
By carrying out a thorough examination on your child, Mary Lo will aim to provide the best orthodontic treatment possible in order to correct any dental issues they may have, resulting in healthy teeth and gums.
