We save parents money & prevent confidence issues in their children by detecting teeth problems early.

Crooked teeth can be avoided if detected before the age of 9 years old.

Orthodontic problems often start in infancy, and most problems can be detected before 9 years of age.

By this age an experienced orthodontist can see if there are extra teeth, missing teeth, buck teeth, crowded teeth, ectopic teeth, potentially impacted teeth, and even if there is going to be a problem with facial growth.

Did you know that one out of four of people don’t like smiling because they’re embarrassed about their teeth? Don’t let your child be one of them.

Everyone deserves to be happy with their smile.

A simple, 15-minute check and some investigating by an experienced orthodontist at this age means crooked teeth can be avoided in the future (the best part – we do this for free at Sunbird Orthodontics!)

Never fear if it’s beyond this time – we can still recommend ways to fix your teeth. The earlier the detection, the easier to fix.


Benefits of early detection and interceptive treatment include:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Improving facial harmony through influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of accidental trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  • Reducing future treatment time with braces
  • Elimination of cross-bites that can have harmful effects on the developing teeth and jaws

“Like father, like son”, “a chip off the old block”. These are sayings which carry so much truth, as far as your teeth are concerned. So, if you or your partner had orthodontic problems as a child, the chances are that your child will too.

Commonly inherited orthodontic problems include:

  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Buck teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gappy teeth
  • Ectopic teeth (growing in the wrong direction)
  • Impacted teeth (teeth stuck up in the gums)
  • Facial shape

Other reasons why your kids teeth should be investigated

  • Thumb sucking and prolonged pacifier use can create buck teeth.
  • Enlarged adenoids can contribute to crowded teeth and crossbite.
  • Sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and mouth breathing
  • Dental decay can cause the loss of baby teeth before they are ready to fall out.

We’ve helped countless children avoid braces

A beautiful confident smile truly is a blessing, and it can help your child enjoy a happy and successful life. However, all too often common orthodontic problems are missed in childhood, resulting in years of expensive orthodontic treatment in the teenage years and adulthood.

Don’t let your kids be one of them.
