Orthodontics in Pune

We believe all children should see an Orthodontist in Pune no later than 7 or 8 years of age. This is because by age 7, enough permanent teeth have come in and enough jaw growth has occurred that problems can be identified.

Early treatment can eliminate the need for more drastic measures. In some cases, satisfactory results are unattainable once the face and jaws have finished growing. With proper timing, children may not have to endure years of embarrassment.

Early treatment provides the opportunity to:

  • Guide the growth of the young jaw bones creating a better environment for those new emerging permanent teeth
  • Guide incoming teeth into optimal positions
  • Regulate the width of the jaws
  • Lower the risk of trauma to prominent front teeth
  • Correct harmful sucking habits
  • Reduce the likelihood of teeth becoming stuck or impacted under the gums
  • Preserve or gain space for arriving permanent teeth

Some signs that may indicate the need for an early orthodontic examination::

  • Early or late loss of baby teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or biting
  • Crowding, malpositioned, or blocked out teeth
  • Jaws that shift or make sounds
  • Biting the cheek or roof of the mouths
  • Teeth that do not meet at all
  • Jaws and teeth that are out of proportion to the rest of the face
  • Finger sucking or pacifier habits continued beyond the age of 6
