Unfortunately, Aleisha developed extensive decay and lost a few teeth. Mum was visibly concerned about the new teeth coming through.
Is this what children should endure? NO, this must never occur. Preventive Care works to avoid this unfortunate situation.
What did Caring 4 Smiles do for Aleisha?
- We fabricated stainless steel crowns to protect the ‘baby’ molars because they maintain space for their permanent successor.
- Bonded the permanent front teeth to prevent them spreading out.
- Fabricated fixed space maintainers for the lower jaw to preserve space for the permanent teeth coming through.
It is our intention to prevent extensive Orthodontic treatment in the future through loss of space and collapse of the jaw. We are prompt in catching this condition early, and the space for the permanent teeth will be maintained for the future.
