Early interceptive Orthodontics/ Orthotropics

Early treatment involves correction as soon as the problem is first diagnosed.

This could be as simple as correcting a habit that’s causing poor development, this may involve plates to help expand the jaw, exercises to get training of the oral muscles or referral to see an ENT surgeon to get the assessment and appropriate surgery.

Our focus is to assist you and help your child with the optimal conditions for their development to the maximum potential hence giving them the best chance in life to be as successful as possible.

By addressing these habits and problems, our aim is to prevent them from either developing or worsening. Early treatment in children is one the greatest forms of preventive treatment for adults.

Orthopaedic treatment is necessary in many cases when the child’s teeth, lips or jaws are not developing normally for their age.

Orthopaedic treatment can:

  • Improve malocclusions
  • Improve facial appearance
  • Make the orthodontic (braces phase) treatment easier and shorter
  • Improve breathing and improve health

In some severe cases, you may need surgery to correct the orthopaedic problem present.
