Orthodontic treatment for children
At Torque Orthodontics, we like to make orthodontics fun for our younger patients.
It's vital that children are taught at an early age about the importance of good dental care, but brushing teeth isn't usually high on a child's list of fun things to do. However, the teeth we get as children are the teeth we have for life, so it’s important to look after them.
The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) recommends children have an initial orthodontic consultation by the age of seven. A consultation at this age will enable us to assess your child’s teeth and jaws and identify any treatment they may require in the future. Because their bones are still growing at this time, certain conditions, such as teeth crowding, can be addressed more easily. Early treatment can also literally improve their facial features for life and save financial and emotional expenses associated with problems that go unchecked.
