Early Orthodontics

  • What is early intervention orthodontics?

    Early intervention orthodontics is also called growth or interceptive orthodontics. It aims at safeguarding your child’s future good oral health.

    Early orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics play a vital role in ensuring your child’s jaw and bite develop properly from a young age, as a child’s jaw is easier to guide into the correct position while they are growing.

  • Who else is involved during treatment?

    A team of practitioners may be involved in your child’s treatment. This may include ENT surgeons, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofunctional therapists, sleep physicians, orthodontists and oral surgeons.

What is the treatment philosophy at Zen Dental Studio?

At Zen Dental Studio, we take a holistic approach that helps to manage a child’s bad dental habits, while guiding jaw, teeth and facial development.

This treatment approach that combines intervention orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics allows us to focus on and treat a child’s potential jaw and bite issues, as well as airway development.

Our dentists look at treating existing or future potential:

  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems
  • Bruxism (grinding teeth, clenching)
  • Guiding airway and oral growth to improve sleep
  • Improve sleep disordered breathing
  • Improve head and neck pain, along with back posture

What are the benefits of early orthodontic treatment?

The benefits of early orthodontic treatment are lifelong, and extremely beneficial to all children. These include:

Correcting bite problems:

Not all children’s teeth align properly, as they may have an underdeveloped jaw or the upper and lower jaw may not align together properly.

Early orthodontic treatment helps to fix bad bites while the jaw is developing and is very easy to manipulate. Leaving orthodontic issues until adulthood makes it a lot harder and lengthier to treat.

Healthier and cleaner teeth

Teeth that are straighter and not misaligned are easier to brush and floss. This means your child can clean their teeth properly and avoid cavities and decay easier.

Preventing premature loss of teeth

Visiting us as early as possible helps to reduce the chances of prematurely losing teeth. Premature tooth loss occurs when baby teeth fall out earlier than required, which can lead to permanent teeth erupting through crooked or in awkward positions.

Reduce chances of dental trauma

Straightening up your little one’s teeth can help to prevent orthodontic or dental problems from worsening in the future.

Crooked and misaligned teeth are more susceptible to suffering dental trauma than straight teeth.

Reduces speech issues

Did you know that a bad bite can actually impact a person’s speaking ability? Misaligned and bad bites can cause children to develop speech impediments, so fixing your child’s bite early on can help to reduce speech issues.
