CORRECTION OF PROCLINED(FORWARDLY PLACED) FRONT TEETH
Prominent (or sticking out) upper front teeth are a common problem in children around the world. For example, this condition affects about a quarter of 12-year-old children in the UK. The correction of this condition is one of the most common treatments performed by orthodontists (dentists who specialise in the growth, function and position of teeth and jaws). This condition develops when the child's permanent teeth erupt. Children are often referred to an orthodontist, for treatment with dental braces, to reduce the prominence of the teeth. Prominent upper front teeth are more likely to be injured and their appearance can cause significant distress.
In 'early treatment', treatment is given in two phases: first at an early age (seven to 11 years old) and again in adolescence (around 12 to 16 years old). In 'late treatment' (one phase), there is only one course of treatment in adolescence. Dhruthi is the Hygienic dental Hospital in Guntur to consult for correction of proclined front teeth.
