Many parents wonder when to start taking the children to the dentist, if there really are effective preventive treatments, if it is worth paying attention to the cavities in the milk teeth or if the positioning of the correction devices should be done before the little ones give the lug.
It is from three years when it is convenient for a child to visit a dentist periodically, there they identify dental problems and, when necessary, intervene to guide the teeth that will erupt. Dentofacial orthopedics is responsible for correcting some malocclusions that may occur during the child’s growth.
Orthopedic treatments seek to modify the growth pattern of bones. If the child has a lack of growth somewhere, the orthopedics will seek to stimulate the development of that area. On the contrary, if there is excessive growth of any region, it will be a matter of re-directing that growth in a more favorable way for the patient.
This type of treatment should be performed at an early age, while the child is growing, we are effective from puberty.
