When to take your children for a check-up?
One of the frequent questions that you ask us is when I should take my son for a check-up to see how his teeth come out. From 6 years of age it is a good time to take your child to the orthodontist.
Despite still having all his baby teeth, he may have eruption problems or bone size problems where the teeth are, which can and should be solved.
During the primary dentition (milk teeth) the first signs of lack of space and alterations in the size of the jaws begin to be seen.
In our clinic we treat:
It is a problem of the size of the upper jaw at the transversal level. It is too narrow.
The treatment consists of a fixed circuit breaker in the palate that has an expansion screw and is activated until the desired size is reached.
It is a very bearable and useful orthopedic treatment. It greatly simplifies treatment in adulthood and even the device can be customized with colors and drawings to suit the patient.
It is a problem of the size of the upper jaw at the transverse and anteroposterior level. Sometimes it is accompanied by a larger than normal lower jaw.
Treatment consists of a fixed palate breaker as used in posterior crossbite and a face mask. The face mask is a device that is only used at home and for sleeping and helps to promote the growth of the upper jaw at the anteroposterior level. Currently, the face mask can be replaced by skeletal anchoring mini plates, which are more comfortable and wearable.
Sometimes, there are baby teeth that fall out before their time and the space that the tooth occupied, for the subsequent eruption of the definitive tooth to close, creating a space problem.
We use expanders and other devices to recover that lost space and thus allow the correct eruption of the final teeth
The increased overhang or classes II are those cases in which the teeth of the
The upper part seems to be very advanced and the chin is very retruded and small.
Despite being a malocclusion that we usually treat in adolescence, in some very severe cases early treatment is indicated. Especially if it is associated with respiratory problems such as sleep apnea and snoring.
Functional appliances are “removable” appliances that children use at home and for sleeping. These help to reduce the distance between the upper teeth and the lower teeth, thus avoiding self-esteem problems or possible dental fractures if the child has a fall.
The proper functioning of the masticatory system is very important for the correct growth of the jaws.
Treatments at an early age usually have a maximum duration of 12 months.
