Giving our children the best start in life
At Nice Bite Orthodontics, we believe in the early diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic issues. Dr Sriram endorses the recommendation made by the Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) that children should have an orthodontic consultation by the age of seven.
Why is early treatment important?
By bringing your child in for an orthodontic consultation at the age of seven or eight, Dr Sriram will be able to identify whether or not your child may suffer from orthodontic issue such as crowding or an improperly aligned bite.
At this age, a child’s bones are still growing and developing, so they respond well to treatment. That's not to say they will need treatment, and if they do, it may be that treatment can commence at a later stage. This early consultation helps you - and us - to identify problems early and plan accordingly.
