Christmas is just around the corner! Not only is it a time to share good company, but it’s also a time to share good food! There will surely be lots of delicious food and sweet treats as it is indeed the best time of the year. Also, kids find this the perfect time to indulge in all the sweet treats they can get. Sure, it sounds really exciting but what comes after it may not be as good.
As fun as it sounds, an ounce of prevention is absolutely worth a pound of cure. When it comes to the health of your children’s teeth, don’t wait until there’s an obvious problem, or it will take a more extensive and more expensive treatment to fix. Some parents think that getting their children to brush their teeth daily is enough. But sometimes, there are some areas not accessible by a regular toothbrush and toothpaste. In cases like these, a dentist’s assistance is needed.
At KIDS, we offer pre-orthodontics for your child. Taking your child to see a dentist early can prevent future problems and avoid surgery.
You already know the importance of taking your child to the dentist and teaching them a good brushing and flossing habits early on. But you may not know that early visits to our pre-orthodontic dentists to review the development of a child’s mouth and jaw can be just as helpful to their health and to your wallet.
Pre-orthodontic treatment aims to correct more serious bite related problems (malocclusions) as well as guide the jaw’s growth pattern.
Problems like overbites, underbites, jaw and tooth size, extra or missing teeth and improper jaw growth can lead to serious dental problems down the road. Harmful oral habits like thumb-sucking, tongue thrusting, and mouth breathing can also lead to serious health problems. Certainly, no parents would want their children to suffer in any way in the future. So, it is best to solve any tooth problems as early as possible.
Pre-orthodontics can treat poor oral habits and provide solutions to problems that may have been more about ‘watching and waiting’. Ultimately, pre-orthodontics does more than making a perfect smile – it creates a healthier child.
Give your child the best Christmas present by giving them a smile they can be proud of. Achieve a life-long smile by booking a pre-orthodontic check now.
