Early Orthodontics is a direction in children’s dentistry, that provides a comprehensive treatment of the problem of improper bite and disorders in the formation of the dentition. We should take care of the beauty of the smile and the health of the teeth from an early age. Young patients and adults are recommended to visit a dentist for preventive examination once every 6 months. An orthodontist, a specialist who will detect any abnormalities in the formation of the dentition in time, must be present at the regular dental examination. Teeth malalignment may become a reason of disturbance of bite, speech defects, and enamel damage.
Consultation with a children’s orthodontist
Reasons for abnormal development of the dental apparatus can be detected during the consultation with a children’s orthodontist and after that, we can offer the most effective treatment methods:
- how the maxillofacial structures will develop, and what opportunities are there to correct abnormalities in time;
- exercises and apparatuses for bite correction are assigned;
- control of character and speed of a child`s jaw growth is performed;
- weaning a baby from a pacifier or finger sucking habit;
- consultation with related specialists (for example, ORT specialist).
Advantages of early orthodontics
After a thorough diagnostics and necessary therapeutic treatment (elimination of carious cavity), an orthodontist chooses the most effective exercises and methods for bite correction and impaired dentition formation. It can be braces or other dental constructions, and teenagers can use brackets or transparent Invisalign aligners. Modern orthodontic constructions don`t cause discomfort for a child and in childhood the correction of snagged teeth or bite disturbance gives the fastest and solid results.

Pediatric dentistry is one of the main directions of Avanto clinics. Our orthodontists use the most effective methods for the correction of bite disturbance and tooth position that not only give great results but are also convenient for children. We consult young parents regarding oral hygiene before the first toothbrush and weaning a child from bad habits that influence the formation of the dentition during the teething. Even for babies who yet don’t have teeth, a doctor will recommend special pacifiers that contribute to the proper formation of the jaws.
