Crossbite Correction- Early Intervention and Orthopedic Treatment
Jaw and dental relationship can be corrected at an early age to avoid surgical intervention later in life.
This is a before and after picture of a 4-year old child who would have suffered from the damaging effect of malocclusion on permanent dentition, attrition, fractures, headaches, and other TMJ related problems.
We want to see our growing children happy, confident, and excel in life. Prevention is the best medication and early orthopedic treatment avoids heavy cost and irreversible complications vs. waiting till permanent teeth erupts. Deciduous teeth are patterns of permanent teeth. Jaw structures, relationship, and size should have enough room to accommodate the adult dentition and improves airway.
