Is your child face growing the right way?

Dentist Dr Wei Shen asks...

Is your child's face "growing" the right way?

We want to avoid teeth that don’t line up properly (called malocclusion) by getting children to swallow properly and to breathe through their noses so that their face and jaw develop the right way. We try to ensure that they grow beautiful faces and to do that,sometimes we have to look at habit correction, expansion of the space between teeth and other techniques so that when they become teenagers they may not need orthodontic work.
