Excellence in the service of your child's smile

Child orthodontics

From what age should you consult?

It is never too early or too late to visit an orthodontist: early orthodontic treatment can start as early as 6 - 8 years of age.

It may be necessary to intervene at this time, so that the current situation does not worsen to the point of damaging the teeth or deflecting jaw growth.

The majority of orthodontic treatments are performed on adolescents between the ages of 9 and 14, however, the stage of dental development is unique to each individual. This is the ideal period when we can benefit from the favourable effect of pronounced craniofacial growth. At this age the wearing of braces is socially acceptable for patients.

The Centre's orthodontists are able to solve all of your child's orthodontic problems.

But here are the most frequent cases:

  • Interceptive treatments: they are fundamental because they allow to limit the evolution of an orthodontic problem in order to obtain a harmonious growth of the craniofacial complex. These treatments use the growth period of the jaws to rectify malformations.

Extraction treatments: in some cases, the size of the teeth is larger than the space available on the arch to accommodate them. Extractions may then be necessary to create enough space.

Thumb/Latch Suction: Thumb or latch suction can affect the development of the jaw and teeth, as well as swallowing and speech functions. Some devices can be used for short periods of time to avoid more strenuous care during adolescence.
