Orthodontics For Children & Teens
Orthodontics For Children
At Townsville Orthodontic Specialists we encourage early examination which allows the orthodontist to detect and evaluate problems and plan appropriate treatment.
Early treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. Early treatment may also achieve results that are not possible once the face and jaws have stopped growing. Our Orthodontists will assess growth and development at your initial appointment, and subsequently prior to and during treatment.
If you think your child has an orthodontic problem, the best time to see an orthodontist is now!
Orthodontics For Teenagers
In most cases, orthodontic treatment is commenced as soon as the last baby tooth has been shed. This usually occurs in the early teens. In some cases, it is an advantage to start just before the last baby teeth are shed.
