Children’s Orthodontics.

Is your child’s adult teeth erupting and are already crooked? Or are you worried about spacing for the adult teeth to come through?

Do they have an underbite? Or a large overbite?

Does your child snore or grind their teeth at night? Do they have interrupted sleep?

Child Orthodontics Kareela

Early orthodontics is an important part of your child’s dental health development. It can reduce the need for future invasive orthodontic treatment such as the unnecessary removal of teeth or even jaw surgery. Orthodontic issues which are identified early can be corrected and treated easier due to the growth potential of a child and the responsiveness of the jaws to treatment.

Early Intervention Orthodontics

Early intervention is key in preventing severe malocclusions later on in life. Interceptive orthodontics does exactly that! We intercept a malocclusion and incorrectly growing child then guide them back on track to proper growth to improve facial profile and harmony.

Our Kareela dentists focus on the cause of the orthodontic problem to help your child develop a well proportioned face, improve overall health and achieve their full growth potential.
