How can a dentist correct a child’s breathing and jaw issues?
Breathing and jaw issues are best assessed and treated before a child reaches adolescence. Early diagnosis at the age of four and above is optimal.
This early treatment helps to correct habits that inhibit the development of the jaw. Remedial treatment results in better facial development and straighter teeth, potentially without extractions and the use of braces.
Our holistic Melbourne dentist takes a team approach involving breathing therapists, ENT (ear nose and throat) specialists, and other medical practitioners depending on your child’s needs.
