Early Intervention Orthodontics

Why Early Intervention Orthodontics is Important

Early Intervention Orthodontics, also known as interceptive orthodontics, involves identifying and treating orthodontic problems in children as early as possible. Moreover, by addressing issues early on, we can help guide the growth of your child’s jaws and teeth, preventing more severe problems in the future. We hope this early treatment will negate the need for complicated future treatment or at least make it simpler. An ideal age for an orthodontic assessment is around 7 years old when permanent teeth emerge.

Twin Block Therapy

Twin Block therapy is one of the methods we use in our Early Intervention Orthodontic program. This treatment involves using two removable appliances which are custom-made to fit your child’s upper and lower jaws. The appliances work together to help correct jaw misalignment and encourage proper jaw growth. Twin Block Therapy is a comfortable and effective treatment option, often significantly improving your child’s facial appearance and bite.

Palatal Expander

A palatal expander is an orthodontic appliance that widens the upper jaw, creating more space for the permanent teeth to grow correctly. This treatment primarily benefits children with a narrow upper jaw or a crossbite. The palatal expander is a custom-made device that fits comfortably in the roof of your child’s mouth. Over time, it gently applies pressure to the upper jaw, encouraging it to expand and grow correctly.

Orthodontic Appliances

At The Dental Centre, we offer a variety of orthodontic appliances to suit the unique needs of each child. In addition to Twin Block therapy and palatal expanders, we utilise other orthodontic appliances such as removable plates, space maintainers, braces, Invisalign clear aligners and retainers. Our team of dental professionals will carefully assess your child’s dental needs and recommend the most suitable treatment option for their specific situation.
