As part of our regular examination, we will survey and screen for your orthodontic
needs and suggest orthodontics when there are some real benefits for both looks
(both smile and facial bone structure), health of gums and jaw joints.
While you still have baby teeth, we screen for habit correction (thumb sucking,
tongue ties, lip traps, tongue thrusting), mouth breathing issues and cross bites.
We also work together with Ear, Nose and Throat surgeons that understand the relationship
between airways and dental facial growth patterns. We also work with a speech pathologist
who is also qualified in myofunctional training. They help teach you to normalise
orofacial muscles and habits. To normalise growth patterns, it is best to identify
these problems early.
