What you can do in your child

In Sakura Dental Clinic, we aim not only to straighten of irregular teeth of children but also aim at the orthodontic treatment that allows them to use their own teeth for their entire life even if they become adults.
Unlike the correction of adults, Pediatric Orthodontics does not just move teeth, it is an advantage that you can improve the state of the skeleton using growth and development.
Adults have already completed the bone size and shape of the chin, so you may need extra tooth extraction during correction, or surgery may be necessary. In general, in Pediatric Orthodontics, there are many cases to be carried out around 6 to 7 years old when the front teeth grow to change, but in some cases, it may be better to start from the time of 3 to 4-year-old baby tooth.
Depending on the condition of your child's teeth and skeleton, the best time to start orthodontic treatment is different.
When parents care about something, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Three causes of teeth arrangement getting worse



The teeth arrangement is also affected by external pressure such as sucking a finger, resting your face on your hands and tongue habit.


Tooth row is narrow

Recently the size of the Japanese chin is getting smaller, but the size of the tooth does not change.
In pediatric treatment, space, where teeth grow up, is secured by expanding the rows of teeth.


Size of upper and lower jaw

Poor tooth arrangement tends to be bad at remembering your lines.If you receive orthodontics, you can properly pronounce sounds such as sounds that can not be clearly pronounced on lines Sa and Ta lines.

3. Jaw and shoulder muscle balance is set.

When you leave bad occlusion, the chin is distorted, and the muscles of the back from the shoulder also tend to become tense.

4. Not suffering from complex

When you have a complex on your teeth, you cannot laugh unconsciously trying to hide your mouth. Let's make corrections before puberty, and let your child have confidence.


We recommend an appropriate start according to your child's condition.

1st treatment

The first treatment is performed in the mixed dentition period (the growth period of the upper and lower jaws, the changing period to the permanent teeth), it is a treatment to adjust the balance of the skeleton.
When the upper and lower jaws are unbalanced, we will carry out jaw corrective treatment (1st treatment) earlier according to that condition.
When early treatment is required, treatment may start at the age of 3 to 4 years old.

2nd treatment

The second treatment is the finishing treatment of the teeth arrangement. After 1st stage treatment, we will wait for the change to grow into permanent teeth.
Because there are individual differences in the growth of the jaws, for children who do not need to treat for 1st term, it is necessary to carry out only 2nd stage treatment after all the permanent teeth have gathered, so we will start it according to the state of each child's state.
As long as the balance of the skeleton is in good condition in the 1st term treatment, it is often that you can achieve better targets in the 2nd stage treatment than compared with the case you did not do the 1st treatment.
