Are you considering orthodontics for your child?
Taking your child to see a dentist from an early age can prevent future problems and avoid surgery.
Many parents believe that orthodontics can wait until all of the child’s milk teeth have erupted. The truth is that addressing your children’s dental issues when they’re younger has the potential to reduce the amount of time they spend on orthodontic treatment later.
Many issues can be corrected through early childhood orthodontic intervention, including underbites, overbites, open bites, deep bites, crossbites, crooked teeth, and jaw problems.
At Terrigal Dental, we are experts at family orthodontics, adult orthodontics, and orthodontic treatment for kids. We are here to help parents understand the significant role of early orthodontic evaluation and treatment in their children’s dental health. Our job as dental professionals is not just to fix problems but to prevent them altogether, if possible.
Early detection and treatment of your child’s orthodontic problems can make the difference between a minimally invasive orthodontic treatment now and complex surgery later. From as early as 6 or 7 years of age, your child may be assessed to determine whether there is a need for braces or not.
Our friendly staff can organise an appointment for an orthodontic consultation for your child and discuss the range of orthodontic options with you.
We firmly believe that the best dental services can be provided only with the most up-to-date technology. This is exactly why we have digital X-ray machines that allow for X-rays with the lowest radiation dose, pain-free electronic anaesthetic delivery and microscopes that ensure that every treatment is as precise as possible.
We at Terrigal Dental also believe that keeping patients waiting creates stress and anxiety. For this reason, we very rarely run late, which means that you will not be spending too much time in our patient lounge – even though it is a very nice and relaxing space.
At Terrigal Dental, we are a progressive practice, wholeheartedly committed to our community of patients. Our welcoming, professional and caring team strive to ensure patients are cared for ethically and meticulously, providing clear, honest communication of all options for optimal personalised dentistry.BOOK APPOINTMENT
