Why should my child undergo non-extraction orthodontics?

Non-extraction orthodontic treatment in many cases can be a suitable treatment for patients who suffer from overcrowding or an overbite.

The procedure usually involves widening or lengthening the jaws, often making use of a child’s natural growth potential. After this treatment, sometimes called ‘growth guidance orthodontics’, often more than 90% of children can have their treatment completed without the need for removal of teeth.

This approach to orthodontic treatment can help support the development of a healthy and attractive smile, jaw and overall facial structure. Patients particularly appreciate the attractive facial profile that can be achieved with non-extraction orthodontic treatment.
