Children’s Orthodontic and Orthopaedic dental treatment at SO Dental Chatswood:

Early Treatment and Interceptive Orthodontics

Interceptive treatment is performed on young, growing children in order to deal with issues such as misaligned jaws, severely overcrowded or protruding teeth or to correct harmful oral habits as early as possible. Delivered between the ages of 7 and 9, treatment typically lasts between 8 and 12 months. It often makes later treatment much less complicated.

Early orthodontic evaluation gives your child the best opportunity for a healthy smile.

Many people mistakenly believe that orthodontic treatment cannot begin until a child’s adult teeth are present. But to give your child the best prospect of a beautiful smile, this simply isn’t the case.

Our dentists at SO Dental Surgery Chatswood will be able to spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still in place. The teeth may appear straight, but underlying problems could easily be present. Frequent monitoring of the child’s growth and development helps avoid major treatment later, and ensures that any necessary work will be recommended at the appropriate time.

Early Children orthodontic treatment helps to:
  • Guide jaw growth
  • Reduce the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
  • Correct harmful oral habits
  • Improve appearance
  • Guide permanent teeth into a more favourable position
  • Create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face
  • Correct crossbites
