Some children naturally have straight teeth, others are not as lucky. The size of your child's teeth and how they fit together are inherited traits, as are malocclusions. Malocclusion is the dental term that literally means "bad bite" and there are a number of different malocclusions.
Orthodontics work to correct malocclusions by bringing a bite into proper alignment.
Our Mississauga Dixie dental team will keep a close eye on your child's oral development. We will ensure that there is room for their bright smile to grow. If your child requires orthodontic treatment, we will recommend the appropriate starting age.
Early treatment can prevent more extensive and costly treatment later in life. Correcting your child's bite can improve their oral health as well as boost their self-confidence.
We would be pleased to talk to you about the benefits of orthodontics next time you are in to see us at our cosmetic dental office at Burnhamthorpe and Rathburn.
