Four Great Reasons To Treat Protruding Teeth Early

At SmilesbyPocock we believe that early treatment of protruding front teeth is important for many reasons.

  1. Less Stressful For Parent and Child
    Treatment of protruding or "buck teeth" is much easier and far less stressful for the parent and the child when done early. We can usually use treatment techniques that don't require the cooperation of the patient - which sets everyone up for success with the least amount of effort. Best of all, if protruding teeth are treated early we don't usually have to prescribe headgear!
  2. Less Time Needed To Fix The Problem
    If dental protrusion treatment is left until teenage years it typically takes longer to correct. The fact is that teenagers aren't always happy to comply with headgear and dental appliances because of the impact that it could have on their social life. Let's face it - there aren't many teens who want to be seen wearing headgear at school or in a social setting.
  3. Less Potential Trauma
    Early treatment of protruding teeth protects the teeth and reduces the chance of trauma. Trauma caused by protruding teeth can include: broken teeth, lost teeth and even the need for a root canal!
  4. More Confidence and Improved Appearance
    Children, adolescents and teens are most concerned with two things:
    1. Their physical appearance and;
    2. What other kids say about them.
    For most kids, if unpleasant things are said about their teeth or appearance it can be damaging to their self-esteem. Normalizing facial and dental appearance almost always boosts a child's self-confidence. And this improved self-confidence helps tremendously during critical school years and is probably the most important reason for getting protruding teeth "fixed" early!
