Orthodontics for Kids
At Moonz, we recommend the first orthodontics check-up for children at the age of 6 or 7, in order to detect any irregularities in the child's bone and dental growth as early as possible.
The Orthodontics for Children in our centres covers: Interceptive orthodontics, Orthopaedics, and Orthodontics at an early age.
At Moonz we have the best professionals so that the little ones have a healthy and happy smile.
The paediatric dentist is responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the teeth (cavities, impacts, gingivitis, etc.). This is the dentist who treats children from infancy until beyond adolescence.
What is the recommended age for this visit?
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that the first visit to the Paediatric Dentist take place at the age of one. This makes it possible to monitor the correct emergence of the primary dentition and provide the parents with advice on early dental care. Check-ups are recommended every six months.
Child patients are treated by the Paediatric Dentist until all of the permanent teeth have emerged (not including the wisdom teeth). This takes place around the age of14.
Collaboration between the Paediatrician-Paediatric Dentist is vital for parents to meet and visit the Paediatric Dentist on a regular basis.
More and more children, on the advice of their paediatricians, are making routine visits to receive preventive treatments (fluoride, sealants, cleanings, etc.), which helps maintain optimum oral health and avoids the dreaded cavities.
During the orthodontics treatment, it is especially advisable to visit the paediatric dentist every six months for a dental check-up. Also, during this period, it is essential to comply with fluoride treatments and sealing of pits and cracks to keep enamel in good condition and free of cavities.
