At Teneriffe Dental, we believe the best proactive dental care begins early in life. While braces are often associated with teenage years, the ages between 7 and 9 are crucial in a child’s dental journey. Dr. Hayden Stewart and our team are here to guide families in Brisbane, New Farm, Fortitude Valley, Bowen Hills, Teneriffe, and beyond towards optimal oral health for your children.

Identifying Early Dental Needs:

During early childhood, certain habits and conditions can impact dental health. Thumb and finger sucking, the use of pacifiers and dummies, tongue ties, and tongue thrusting should be addressed early to prevent future complications. We specialise in identifying and treating these issues with empathy and understanding.

Addressing Breathing and Sleeping Issues:

The removal of enlarged or problematic adenoids and tonsils can directly affect breathing and sleeping patterns in children. Early detection and treatment of these issues can often contribute to improved dental health and overall well-being.

Treating Missing or Impacted Teeth:

Detecting missing or impacted teeth before the age of 9 allows for swift and effective treatment. Our team aims for early intervention to set the stage for dental success as your child grows.

Guiding Jaw Growth:

Children experience significant jaw growth before the age of 10. Intercepting and guiding this growth early can lead to better outcomes and reduce the need for extensive orthodontic treatment later in life.

Exploring Dental Appliances and Braces:

Orthodontic treatment can consist of a number of different methods from removable appliances, traditional wire braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign. Each option serves a unique purpose in addressing dental concerns and aligning the teeth properly. Clear aligners like Invisalign provide a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. They are ideal for patients seeking a less noticeable treatment option. At Teneriffe Dental, we tailor our approach to suit your child’s specific needs, ensuring a comfortable and effective orthodontic experience.
