EARLY TREATMENT

The benefits of early orthodontic treatment.

The Australian Society of Orthodontics recommends that children should visit an orthodontist between six to eight years of age. Gladesville Orthodontics offers specialist early assessments to address and monitor any potential orthodontic issues.

By evaluating your child at a young age, we can isolate the concern to Phase One treatment, adjusting or correcting the issue with growth. Identifying and solving an orthodontic issue early not only helps your child, but also saves you future time and money.

There are early visible symptoms of potential orthodontic issues. If your child has crowded or misaligned teeth, speech difficulties or sucks their thumb past the age of five, this may indicate a need for treatment.

We use a range of additional orthodontic appliances, most commonly for our younger Phase One patients. These are generally focused on improving the alignment of the jaw and laying the foundation for future orthodontic treatment.

There are many different orthodontic appliances designed to address different concerns. The right option for your child depends on their unique circumstance and can be determined by your orthodontist after a thorough assessment.
