Giving Your Child the Gift of a Healthy Smile
Early intervention when it comes to orthodontics can be crucial in order to address problems before they become more severe later in adulthood. If you or a previous dentist has taken notice of mouth breathing, a narrow jaw, or an overbite or underbite, these issues should be dealt with as soon as possible. These can lead to additional orthodontic problems and interfere with proper development if left as-is. Contact Dr. Williams at Gentle Dental Care today – our team would be happy to discuss your concerns and figure out what your best option maybe!
Early Intervention So You and Your Child Can Breathe Easier
Mouth breathing early in childhood can lead to issues such as lack of oxygen and poor sleep habits at night, which can affect your child’s functioning during the day through headaches, fatigue, and a lack of concentration. Additionally, if your child struggles with headaches, dizziness, earaches, or a clicking or locking jaw, their issues may be the result of a narrow jaw, receding lower jaw, or deep overbite. If these have been discussed with their primary care physician and any possible infection has been ruled out, our functional appliances may be a good option to alleviate their symptoms.
Get in Touch With Us Today to Discuss Functional Appliances
Since some of these symptoms could be the result of various possible health issues, they should initially be discussed with your child’s doctor. If no solution is reached, we’d be more than happy to go over any questions or concerns you may have. Dr. Williams and the team at Gentle Dental Care are proud to offer functional appliances to anyone in need of early treatment in their orthodontic journey.
