We encourage parents to bring their children to our practice as soon as the first baby tooth has erupted. We like to educate parents on how they should look after their children’s teeth and allow them to exfoliate naturally. However, the child’s teeth are not our only concern. It is very important to evaluate the child’s oral mucosa, tongue and airway during their 6-monthly check-up. The 6-monthly check-up helps the child to develop healthy and naturally and to identify any potential issues while still in their early stages.
Dr Shiva Shamim believes in interceptive orthodontic treatment, which is cost effective and less invasive for children. Our philosophy is that the child should have a correctly positioned jaw and aligned teeth by the time they reach adolescence.
