Children’s appliance, what is it for?

This equipment is also used to guide the growth of the jaw bones in order to improve chewing and solve any problems in the joints.
It is important to carry out dental examinations from the age of 6-7, when all the milk teeth have appeared.
The dentist will thus be able to assess early on the possible need for interceptive orthodontic treatment.
In suitable cases, the contribution of the appliance for children is essential for the balanced growth of all the structures of the oral cavity: it is important to act before the end of skeletal development in the child, to modify the bone conformation and the teeth when they have not yet reached a more mature phase.
