Orthodontics for Children
Your Kid Smiles Hundreds of Times a Day
At Beam Orthodontics, we want to help build a smile for your child that’s healthy and confident so that they’re never too intimidated to show off their grin. The Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the American Association of Orthodontists recommend that a child’s first visit to the orthodontist occurs as early as seven years of age.
At our Penticton office, you won’t need a dentist referral, and you won’t have to pay any fees for your child’s first consultation.
How Early Orthodontic Treatment Helps
While your child likely won’t require treatment at an early age, some problems, if detected early, can be much easier to fix than if you wait until they’re older.
Early treatment at our office in Penticton may prevent or intercept these more serious problems from developing — and make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In some cases, Dr. Paxon and our expert Beam Orthodontics team can get results that may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.
Examples of problems that may benefit from early orthodontic treatment include:
- Premature loss of baby teeth that can lead to loss of space for the permanent teeth
- Delayed loss of baby teeth that can interfere with the eruption of the permanent teeth
- Mouth-breathing that can interfere with the development of the upper jaw
- Tongue posture and swallowing imbalances that can interfere with normal dental development
- Thumb, finger, or soother sucking habits that can cause an open bite or excess overjet (bucked teeth)
- Imbalances that cause the jaw to un-naturally shift during function
- Excess protrusion of the upper front teeth that can greatly increase the risk of injury to these teeth
- Under-bite caused by an imbalance in the growth of the upper and lower jaws
- A narrow upper jaw that can result in a cross-bite of the baby and permanent teeth
