Early treatment involves interceptive orthodontic or othopaedic correction as soon as the problem is first diagnosed. This may involve habit correction appliances to prevent the development of bite/facial related problems; orthopaedic functional appliances to improve bite/facial form; or the use of specialist fields such as ENT (ear, nose and throat specialists) speech pathology, and cranial chiropractic specialist.
Rather than treating the problem, early treatment allows us to assist you in co-diagnosis and preventing the problems from either developing or worsening. Early treatment is based on arriving at the cause of the problem and addressing this, rather than simply treating the problem after it has developed.
Early treatment is one of our greatest forms of preventive treatment for children.
