Ask Dr Elaine Tan: Early Braces Treatment In Children

DxD Session held on August 31, 2018.

Most people associate orthodontics with adolescence or older children. However, orthodontists recommend that children see an orthodontist as early as age 7. Typically, permanent teeth start to come through around the age of 6 or 7, with adult molars coming through around the age of 10.

If your child displays orthodontic problems that warrant treatment, your orthodontist will recommend the most efficient sound course of action to nip it in the bud.  

Join Dr Elaine Tan, an experienced orthodontist from National Dental Centre as she hosts a QnA session where she answers all your questions on early braces treatment in children.

What Is Orthognathic Surgery And Who Needs It? Here's What You Should Know

One of the main reasons people seek orthodontic or braces treatment is to improve their bite. For some, the cause of their bite problems lies beneath their teeth, in the jaw bones.

The word “orthognathic” means “pertaining to the normal relationship of the jaws”.

When there is disharmony in the way the jaws sit with respect to each other, orthognathic surgery is advised to achieve normal alignment of the jaws.

Dr Priscilla Lu, an Associate Consultant Orthodontist, from National Dental Centre Singapore explains. 

DxD is proud to partner with National Dental to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health. To learn more about oral health and healthcare, head down to the National Dental Centre's public forum on dental care on 23 March 2019 to find out more.

Thank you for your question. I must admit that I was initially unfamiliar with the term "mewing" and had to do a bit of research into what this meant. Mewing is a concept developed by Drs Mike Mew and John Mew that encourages a proper way of positioning the tongue and jaw muscles...

With straighter teeth, your child will find it easier to brush and maintain his/her oral hygiene. Straight teeth also make your child look better when he/she smiles and boost confidence!

Hello Meixin, I am happy that you are on this journey with your daughter! There is nothing much that you need to do. Most of the responsibility will be on your daughter to clean her teeth and braces well. Her dentist probably would have taught her how to clean her teeth with brac...

I am so sorry to hear about his discomfort from braces. I would advise you to bring him back to see the dentist. You could also try giving him some Panadol syrup to help relieve the pain.

Congratulations on your daughter’s first step to achieving a beautiful and healthy smile! I usually tell my patients they can continue with their normal diet. However, they should avoid chewing hard food like nuts, crabs or ice cubes as these may cause the braces to come ...

You are quite right about the fact that most of the time orthodontists will only start full braces treatment when a child has all their adult teeth present. However, every child is different and there exists certain conditions where early management may help to prevent worsenin...

Thank you for your photos. The majority of the orthodontic cases we treat have braces placed on both the upper and lower teeth. This is because besides straightening your teeth, we want the upper and lower teeth to fit well when you chew. In suitable cases, it is possible to d...

Thank you for sharing your photo. 1) There are multiple reasons that can cause a permanent tooth to grow out into an incorrect position. One reason could be due to an obstruction in the path of eruption, such as a stubborn baby tooth root. As you mentioned, this may be the case...
