What is early orthodontics?

Early Orthodontic treatment

Early orthodontics is a treatment that is performed on children to monitor the dental growth of children and identify possible issues and treat the situation on time.

Early orthodontics follows the growth of the jaw and dental arches to be in the correct position. The treatment can also correct bite difficulties and improve the patient’s facial aesthetics.

Additionally, it helps reduce the need for future orthodontic procedures and can significantly improve quality of life.

When is early orthodontic treatment necessary?

Early Orthodontic treatment

Treatment is required in those cases where bite problems are detected in childhood. They can include very small or very large lower jaws, an overly protruding upper jaw, crowded teeth, protruding teeth, breathing issues, and others related to the position of the teeth and jaw.

Early orthodontics is recommended before jaw growth is complete. The ideal age for treatment is generally recommended 7 years.

How is the early orthodontic treatment performed?

Early Orthodontic treatment

Treatment may include different techniques and devices, depending on the diagnosis. One of the most common devices in treatment is the palatal expander, which corrects dental crowding issues and improves the position of the teeth. It can also help create more space for the teeth and improve the patient’s bite.

Another frequently used device in early orthodontics is the Herbst appliance, which is used to correct bite problems. It is a bar that is attached to the upper and lower molars and stretched across the mouth to help reposition the jaw.

Some diagnoses are treated with headgear to guide the growth of the upper jaw. It is positioned at the back of the head and applies a gentle, constant force to the upper jaw.
