Breathing through your mouth, reverse swallowing, sucking your thumb or fingers, and tongue thrusting can lead to crooked teeth. Certain allergies or an asthmatic condition can aggravate the problem. It is beneficial for a child’s dental and overall health to alter these habits in the early stages of development.
Interceptive orthodontics targets dental problems, such as jaw misalignment, protruding or overcrowding teeth as well as incorrect oral habits before the set of permanent teeth appear. The treatment usually takes between 8 to 12 months.
