Early orthodontic treatment

Early orthodontic treatment

As parents, we all want to give our children the best start in life; that includes giving them great teeth. Establishing an effective oral hygiene routine early in your child’s lifetime is important to ensure they have clean, healthy teeth for years to come. If you bring your child in for a consultation with our Specialist Orthodontist Dr. Rachel Smith, she can tell you if orthodontic treatment can benefit them.

Why does my child need an orthodontic consultation?

In most cases it is likely you have been referred by the school dental service or your family dentist. It is a great idea to bring your child in for a consultation with a specialist orthodontic so that we can identify any issues with their teeth. Often, we suggest that the child becomes part of our review programme with no treatment required. However, should Dr Smith identify that early treatment is required, it can sometimes help us with comprehensive treatment at a later time when the child has all or most of their adult teeth.

Phase One treatment

Bringing your child in for an orthodontic consultation helps us identify orthodontic problems early on. Phase One, or early treatment enables us to start addressing any misalignments while your child still has a mix of their baby and adult teeth. Orthodontic treatment doesn’t need to be scary. We’ll make sure your child is comfortable in our clinic every step of the way through treatment.

Invisalign® First

At Eden Orthodontics, we take a proactive approach to treating our most junior patients. We always look for ways we can reduce the treatment needed during their self-conscious teenage years. Invisalign First is designed specifically for children. Your child’s mouth is still growing, so Invisalign First delivers all the benefits of regular Invisalign treatment while allowing their teeth to grow naturally. Invisalign clear aligners have been incredibly popular with teens and adults and we are so thrilled that our young patients can enjoy the benefits too!
