Children's orthodontics in Kyiv
Symptoms of deviation from the harmonious development of the facial skeleton are primarily bad habits. If you notice that your child often walks with his mouth closed, breathes poorly through his nose, is reluctant to chew or generally refuses hard food, pronounces some sounds incorrectly (from 5 years and older), this is a reason to consult an orthodontist.
In addition, the symptom is, of course, unevenly growing teeth. At the age of 4-5 years, the baby should have spaces between all the milk teeth – this means that the jaws are growing correctly and are “preparing” for the eruption of larger permanent teeth.
If at this age the teeth are tight, without gaps, this is also a reason to consult an orthodontist. After all, the earlier the anomaly is diagnosed and measures are taken for its treatment, the shorter the time it will take to eliminate it.
Methods used in children's orthodontics
The methods used in children’s orthodontics are myogymnastics and appliances. Myogymnastics are exercises for different groups of muscles to correct their function. These are exercises for the tongue, chewing hard food, breathing exercises, and general physical strengthening for postural disorders. Myogymnastics is what will ensure proper muscle function, proper growth of the jaw and guarantee the stability of the achieved treatment results.
Appliances in children’s orthodontics are mostly removable. In general, they are divided into two large groups – trainers (orthopositioners, LM-activators, EF series devices from RMO, etc.) and plate devices (Bioblock and modifications, Andresen activator, etc.).
The most important thing in wearing any orthodontic device is to follow the orthodontist’s recommendations, because the success of orthodontic treatment depends only half on the doctor, and the other half on the patient and his parents.
