Orthodontic Assessment

As your family dentist in Bowen, we love seeing children for regular dental check-ups. During these regular examinations, one of the things we will be assessing is the development of their teeth and jaws. If we think they will benefit, we may recommend your child has an orthodontic assessment. This can take place around age seven.

Why Might My Child Need an Orthodontic Assessment?

By the age of seven it will be possible for our team to assess the development of your child’s teeth, including ones that have yet to erupt. Overcrowding or misaligned teeth can affect the bite and ability to chew properly. An orthodontic assessment can also be very useful for children with oral habits such as thumb or finger sucking or tongue thrusting.
