As soon as I noticed that my child’s teeth grow crooked, I immediately turned to the dentist. I assure you that it is dangerous to self-medicate, not trusting specialists. Due to the misunderstanding of parents, even greater pathological changes can occur.
In general, I turned to a dentist with a child as soon as his first permanent tooth erupted. It was at the age of six.
I read a lot of literature about parenting while I was carrying a child under my heart, so I knew well that the wrong bite could develop because of crooked teeth. Teeth do not grow properly due to various bad habits, improper swallowing, jaw injuries, loss of individual teeth, abrasion of teeth and other causes.
It is possible to correct teeth that are not too even at any age, but the older a person is, the longer he will receive treatment.
We decided not to put braces on the boy, but this method is absolutely not necessary in our time. Today, there are modern technologies, the latest equipment and effective materials, which make it possible to correct crooked teeth successfully and painlessly.
From my own experience and from literature, I know that milk teeth are extremely rare curves. Especially in such cases, it is necessary to immediately sound the alarm. And if a baby grows smooth milk teeth, this does not mean that the indigenous ones will be just as smooth. Therefore, without consulting a dentist can not do.
When my child was 6 years old, I went with him to the orthodontist for prevention. And it’s good that I did it in a timely manner. Then I learned about several methods of correcting problematic teeth.
We were offered a choice:
1. Trainer who can help a child aged 3-7 years.
2. Orthodontic plates, with which help align the teeth in children of primary school age.
3. Braces are set for older children, starting at 11 years old. By the way, braces help and adults.
4. The intervention of the surgeon may be needed only in a difficult situation. For example, some teeth are removed if there are orthodontic indications, or they perform complex operations, reducing or increasing the size of the jaw.
We decided to put orthodontic plates to our son, and soon things went wrong with his teeth.
In general, I made such a conclusion that the treatment and correction of crooked teeth should be started as soon as possible. The timing of the correction of these teeth and the proper eruption of the following depend on this.
And as a reward to me – the happy and white-toothed smile of my child.
