At Northern Beaches Dental, we take great care to assess and monitor the growth of the jaws and the way the teeth are placed in the jaw for every child we see. We believe that this is very important as early diagnosis and management of potential problems will go a long way, helping children to keep their teeth healthy and looking great well into their adult life. Some children struggle with thumb sucking and other habits which can cause significant changes to their jaws and teeth. We work very closely with the local Orthodontists and have a good referral and follow-up system in place to ensure you get the best treatment at the right time. At times we collaborate with ENT surgeons and other specialists as needed to include a multi-disciplinary approach to offer best treatment options especially when breathing, tongue posture and speech is involved.
