The early treatment of developing malocclusions can be beneficial to your growing child. We can discuss opportunities to mitigate the impact these aberrant patterns of growth have on your child. Treatment opportunities are also available for the fully manifest malocclusion in the young adolescent and adult, as well as the individual suffering from Sleep Apnoea and TMJ disease brought on by occlusal, cranial and posture factors.
The concept of Early Intervention is generally centred on establishing nasal breathing, with lips closed and a correct swallow. Some of our treatment protocols are recommended within the first few days after birth. Most are recommended several years later following the impact that insufficient airways, mouth breathing and aberrant swallowing has had on the growing child.
