Orthodontic malocclusions or deviations can be genetic or due to a bad habit. They can also appear with the formation of temporary (milk) dentition and therefore we advise the child to visit an orthodontist at preschool age. The periods of 6 and 9 years are extremely important, as this is the time when children grow the fastest and each deviation or deformity can be corrected more easily and in a shorter period. Before diagnosing the young patient and preparing a complete treatment plan, an orthodontic consultation must be performed. It takes place in several stages:
Pictures of your child's face and teeth are taken;
Digital scans are taken from both jaws;
3D printed models of teeth are made;
Two X-rays are appointed - panoramic and lateral cephalometry;
The orthodontist gets acquainted in detail with the habits of the child.
Orthodontic consultation should not be neglected, as each of its stages is extremely important for the correct diagnosis and subsequent treatment of your child. After careful analysis of all the information gathered, a second visit is scheduled to explain all the existing problems, as well as to present a treatment plan with the relevant goals, devices ( brackets or aligners) and deadlines in which to be implemented. At every stage from diagnosis to completion of orthodontic treatment, we follow the process closely and strive to provide maximum comfort to our young patients.
