Paediatric Orthodontist Gold Coast
Paediatric Dental Practice Gold Coast
Setting your child up for their future
Gullotta Orthodontics is a leading paediatric orthodontist on the Gold Coast. Early intervention is key for efficient orthodontic outcomes for your child.
Early intervention is the orthodontic treatment of children between 7 and 10 years old. Rather than focusing on straightening adult teeth, the main focus of Early Intervention is to ensure there is enough room for the adult teeth to come through and that the uppper and lower jaw are in correct alignment.
What does the orthodontist look for?
Not every child needs early intervention, but if they do, there is good reason
Dr Gullotta will assess:
- Whether the upper and lower jaws are growing in correct alignment with one another
- Whether there are any missing teeth, extra teeth or teeth that are growing in the wrong direction or position
- Whether there is enough room in the jaws to fit any future adult teeth
Free kids' check-ups for peace of mind
Dr Gullotta provides complimentary regular check-ups for your child to monitor their orthodontic development and treats only when and if the time is right.
