We recommend having our kids' teeth checked twice a year. In this visit, the pediatric dentist checks on your child's teeth, observes the growth of the jaws, eruption of the teeth and the process of replacing them.

They also make early detection of caries possible so that treatment can be done more easily.
At the end of the visit, the doctor will tell you if your child needs treatment and plan or just follow up regularly and schedule it
Orthodontics for children is a precautionary measure from any future problems that your child may face, and early problems are detected and eliminated at their beginning. Children's teeth and jaws are considered to be more easy to reshape
The most important benefits of installing braces for children early are as follows:
Preventing the growth and development of jaw and teeth defects and preventing the need for future surgical intervention
Remove congestion between teeth and correct their position
Reducing the possibility of breaking the protruding upper teeth as a result of accidents.
Treat bad habits
Some of your child's behaviors and habits may cause deformities in his teeth and the relationship and growth of his jaws. Our pediatric dentist will diagnose your child's condition and determine the need for orthodontics at an early age to repair these defects or to prevent the habit and thus reduce the resulting damage. Early identification and prompt treatment of your child's condition helps in treating these simple problems, in contrast to neglect that may lead to more complex treatment later. Examples include:
The protrusion of the lower teeth behind the upper teeth.
The consistency of the jaw and the size of the teeth.
The presence of more or less teeth than required
Thumb sucking that distorts the teeth.
Tongue thrusting, also known as immature swallowing or reverse swallowing.
