At our office, pediatric dental care goes beyond routine checkups and treatments for cavities. Our specialists are prepared to diagnose and address a variety of harmful oral habits and help to ensure that your kid’s dental anatomy develops in the healthiest possible manner. Among the most common oral habits is thumb or digit sucking. Finger sucking can often provide children with a feeling of comfort, relaxation, and security, and even help them to fall asleep at night. But when a finger sucking habit continues beyond the preschool years, as the permanent teeth are getting ready to come in, this oral habit can increase the chance of developing an improperly aligned bite. Your pediatric dentist can provide professional guidance for habit control strategies, and carefully assess if there have been any habit-related alterations to the alignment of your children’s teeth and jaws. In certain cases, an interceptive appliance can be used to correct harmful oral habits. With unhealthy shifting of the teeth and jaws, our office is further prepared to correct your children’s bite using orthodontics for children in Carlsbad.
