Orthodontics is a specialty that deals with the correction of interarch malalignment or deformities, as well improper arrangement of the teeth in the dental arches.
- Preschool age
In the preschool period - from 4 to 7 years of age - is the best time for the first preventive examination by an orthodontist.
Orthodontic treatment is a long process that can take about a year. It requires great motivation and effort from the orthodontist to the parents and the little patient. In case of severe malalignment, we have to intervene and start early treatment at the beginning of the falling out of milky teeth and their replacement with permanent ones (around the sixth, seventh year), then wait for the formation of permanent dentition and then complete treatment. At Sky Dental Kids we take special time and attention to educate our patients and their parents.
- School age
School age, before puberty, is the period when orthodontic treatment is most often performed to arrange the teeth in the dental arches. Our practice shows that the severity of the problem does not matter, because we have the experience and the necessary knowledge to deal with it together. It is good to remember that the devices and braces are for several years, and the beautiful smile achieved is for life.See more
