In many cases children get to clinics because of the fear of the parents, since in „their time” they had no chance to go to orthodontics and they come because of their fears due to their own bad examples to save their children from similar problems.
A successful orthodontics treatment improves the self-respect of the child, it may save from the ugly mockery of other teenagers. After all, orthodentics are equal to attrective smile, i.e. a child in health!
It is a very important period in the treatment of children. The final, permanent dentition is being developed, jaws are in permanent growth and reach their final positions and sizes. Deviations can successfully be treated with both removable and fixed devices. Using removable devices we can first of all regulate the growth of jaws. These are the so called functional treatments having impact on both jaws. It is also called jaw surgery treatment. If we fail to do this, later some abnormalities can only be corrected by jaw surgary intervention.
