Braces
for Children

Your child’s smile is the most precious thing, isn’t it? That is why at Wired Orthodontics, we offer an early orthodontic consultation. We want to do all we can to help you ensure your son or daughter has a smile they are proud to show off.

Importance of
an Early Consultation

The Australian Society of Orthodontics (ASO) recommends children visit a specialist orthodontist for an assessment starting from age eight. At this assessment, while your child’s teeth and jaws are still growing, we can assess the position of your child’s teeth and look for any signs they may need treatment, either now or later.

By taking a proactive approach to your child’s orthodontic treatment needs, you can help to minimise the extent of treatment they will need later on as well as the cost of future treatment. It’s also an opportunity for your child to become familiar with the orthodontic clinic environment.

Signs for
early treatment

Sometimes your son or daughter will start to show early signs of a need to have treatment. If your child shows signs of any of the following, an orthodontic assessment should be considered:

  • Early loss of baby teeth (before age 5)
  • Late loss of baby teeth 
  • Teeth do not meet properly or at all
  • Mouth breathing
  • Front teeth are crowded (usually you won’t notice this until your child is about 7 or 8)
  • Protruding front teeth
  • Biting and/or chewing difficulties
  • Speech impediment
  • Your child’s jaw shifts when he or she opens or closes the mouth
  • Your child is older than five years and still sucks a thumb
