Identifying potential orthodontic issues at an early age when the teeth and jaw are still developing, can help prevent more expensive and involved treatments later on in life.
Early orthodontic treatment, also known as interceptive orthodontics, take advantage of the growing jaw in a child to make adjustments which may lead to a more aligned jaw and straighter teeth in the future. At Murray Valley Dental Group our dentists strongly believe in early orthodontic treatment where issues with jaw alignment as well as poor oral habits are identified and treated early.
Using early orthodontics, issues such as jaw misalignment (overbite and underbite), crooked or crowded teeth and sleep disorders can be treated, thus preventing the need for expensive orthodontic treatment as children grow older.
Our friendly team of dentists will carefully assess your child’s jaw and determine the best treatment plan for them. We provide a variety of early intervention orthodontic treatments including orthopaedic appliances such as the orthopaedic plate or brace.
