Empowering Parents: Questioning Orthodontic Watchful Waiting for Your Child's Health

The Australian Orthodontic Society recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Many parents take their child to the orthodontist with concerns of dental crowding and problems like overbites, and they are placed on a program of annual reviews and monitoring of the problem with the aim of ideally delaying treatment until the permanent teeth come through. The aim is to complete treatment efficiently in one phase and minimize burnout of a child that may occur with multiple phases of treatment.

Some parents have concern about the problem worsening each year but don’t recognize they have other options. The problem is that, as each year passes, we miss the chance to redirect the underlying poor pattern of jaw and facial development.

Breathing and Airway Impact:

The jaws are the bony framework for our airways. They form the floor of our nasal passages, housing for our tongue, and skeletal support for our throat muscles. Crooked teeth are most often a symptom jaw development is going off track. And that equates to some degree of limitation of airflow, which will ultimately impact sleep quality.

Last week, I saw a 10-year-old child by referral from a dental colleague. My colleague was the first person to identify to mum that she had a severely restrictive tongue-tie, very narrow V-shaped palate, and obstructive tonsils. She had a significant vertical facial growth pattern associated with a chronic mouth breathing habit. There were concerns with chronic snoring, difficulties with emotional regulation, and ADHD type symptoms. They had been seeing many health care professionals, and attending for yearly orthodontic reviews, and my colleague was the first to give mum answers – it was a massive weight off her shoulders.

Between seeing my colleague and me, the child has had ENT surgery and a reduction in snoring. There has been a remarkable improvement in her emotional regulation with improvements in sleep quality. But there is persistent mouth breathing, and the narrow palate and reduced tongue space are factors for this. I can’t address her tongue-tie until tongue space is restored. She is just a bit older, and out of my comfort zone to treat orthodontically. In fact, jaw surgery as she gets older will be a valid option to help unlock missed growth from earlier childhood, and optimise her airway, sleep, and facial balance.

Many times, parents want to know, “Why I was not told about early intervention earlier?”

Take-Home Message:

The take-home message for parents is that early intervention may not always be offered, and some professionals might even be critical of those who offer early treatment. However, if you have concerns about issues getting worse or notice any functional challenges related to speech, breathing, sleep, behaviour, attention, and concentration, or night-time symptoms like teeth-grinding or bedwetting, seeking a second opinion could be valuable. Empower yourself as a parent to advocate for your child's well-being and explore all available options.

“Oral Cancers are about equally common in black and white people; however, Black men die at a higher rate than their White counterparts. Much of the risk of mouth cancer is due to to***co use (cigarette and chew) and drinking alcohol. Most people who are diagnosed with these cancers are older, around the age of 60.”

Visit your doctor if you are experiencing any symptoms!

Swipe for the most common symptoms!

Temporomandibular disorders (or TMDs) can be caused by injury, grinding and clenching or, quite commonly, malocclusion (when your teeth don’t fit together the way they should).

TMD can cause headaches, pain in the neck, face and jaw, problems chewing, food aversions, popping or clicking sounds in the jaw, lock jaw, sleep difficulties and more.

🎙️ Exciting Podcast Alert! 🎉

Hey everyone! I am absolutely thrilled to share a podcast episode that is near and dear to my heart. 🌟 Dr. Lynda and I had the incredible opportunity to be featured on the Children's Airway First Foundation podcast , hosted by the wonderful Rebekah St.James. 🎧

We were beyond honored to join the ranks of renowned experts like Dr. Kevin Boyd, James Nestor, and Dr. Tasha Turzo, who have graced this platform with their insights into children's airway health and growth. ✨ Our passion for pediatric patients' well-being led us to a captivating discussion about a topic that truly matters - the intricate relationship between airway, sleep, breathing, and growth in children.

At Ashburn Children's Dentistry, our mission is all about providing compassionate care and personalized treatment plans for young patients. We firmly believe in addressing the root causes of issues rather than just tackling symptoms. 💜 Our focus on early prevention and educating parents sets the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles and resilient adults.

During the podcast, we delved into the significance of early screening for growth and developmental concerns right from birth. Did you know that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can lead to a reduction of up to 10 IQ points in children? 😲 We also explored fascinating topics like the ALF appliance, the importance of chewing, and breastfeeding for optimal development.

If you're curious to learn more about our insights and experiences, head over to Spotify and give this episode a listen. 🎶 Let's come together to empower ourselves with knowledge that can shape the future of our children's health. 💫

Ever wonder when someone actually needs to use the emergency line you hear on the answering service for dental offices? Here's when...

Often times, these signs can be at the point of real concern. Avoid getting to this point by...
✓Following the post-op care instructions given to you after your restorative dental appointments
✓ Getting regular oral exams at your 6-month Dental Health Visits
✓Paying attention to when your child is showing signs of discomfort, habit compensation, or physical symptoms like bleeding, bumps or swelling

If your child has any of these signs, call your dentist immediately. Don't have a dentist that takes emergency appointments like Ashburn Children's Dentistry? Contact your pediatrician or go to your nearest pediatric emergency room.

Children's teeth are still developing and pulp and root are critical for this. We don't want to get to the point where we need to perform "baby root canal" (pulpotomy) and especially NOT a root canal.

The procedure can be a scary event, especially for the parents. We want to make sure that we are conservative about when to perform this procedure. If it has to be performed, we want to make it as comfortable and easy as possible. This is done through laser pediatric pulpotomy.

In dentistry it has been commonplace that if the pulp, where the nerves are in the tooth, becomes infected and irritated, a root canal is the only effective choice. However, today's research indicates that with earlier detection a pulpotomy may be just as effective. Saving more of the roots and tooth!

Without treating the nerve, a filling or crown may actually cause the tooth to become more painful and lead to an abscess - a p***y bacterial infection. Because early loss or removal of a baby tooth can lead to limiting facial development, we attempt to restore teeth and allow your child to thrive with the benefit of pain-less laser dentistry.

"Common" doesn't mean normal. You know when something is wrong and you know that feeling that it could be easier for your child...well that is possible. It's important to know your options and get a second opinion.

No, it isn't always going to be an easy journey. But make sure that you find the right path. Get an assessment to see if sleep disordered breathing or myofunctional dysfunction could be the cause to your child's "common" or undiagnosed condition.
