Nowadays, many parents know the word "bite" firsthand, they know that sometimes it can be wrong and it must be treated. Especially advanced know the words " ". But, as a rule, knowledge ends here, but myths and guesses begin. Not everyone knows when to visit an orthodontist. Some carry their children immediately after leaving the maternity hospital and demonstrate the toothless jaw of the baby. Others believe that until the baby teeth change, the orthodontist is not needed. However, the first preventive visit to the orthodontist should be scheduled for 3-4 years. Previously, there is no sense, since there are no teeth and it is not clear whether the bite is correct. However, if the child's teeth spoil immediately after eruption, then you need to go to the dentist as early as possible to stop the process. Milky teeth can not be left untreated, although, it would seem, they will still fall out. The whole point is that if the milk tooth is not cured in time, it will give complications that lead to damage to the rudiments of the permanent tooth. If the milk tooth falls early, the child may have an abnormality of the bite, the treatment of which will be expensive and difficult. Overseas not only treats baby teeth, but sometimes covers them with crowns to prevent premature tooth loss and the progression of the carious process. Another misconception is that orthodontists are treated exclusively with braces. However, at an early age can not be treated with braces - they simply do not make sense to put on permanent teeth. Therefore, in the dairy bite pathologies are treated with the help of special apparatus-plates. At this age, as a rule, only serious pathologies are treated, affecting not only individual teeth, but in general on the growth and formation of the entire jaw, or a variety of preventive procedures that allow the preparation of the jaw and teeth for subsequent treatment, or self-regulation of the bite pathology .
Why do teeth grow wrong?
There is no doubt that the treatment of infant teethit is extremely necessary, and to correct the occlusion, one must visit the orthodontist. But who is to blame for the fact that the teeth grow wrong? The reasons that cause the pathology of bite, is extremely large. This is, first of all, hereditary causes. Many types of bite (eg "Hapsburg lip", disease of kings) are "family". A common cause for this is birth trauma. Also, the bite is adversely affected by the carious decay of the milk teeth, as well as their early removal. There are other, not very noticeable reasons. For example, the habit of sucking a finger or biting a pen can lead to the fact that the teeth "part" in different directions. However, the main task of the parent is to show the baby to the orthodontist, who will be able to find the pathology, identify the cause, and then correct the problems of bite.
