Child health, when a child has rapid sweating and heart beat?

Child health, when a child has rapid sweating and heart beat?

Rapid Heart Beat: When discussing a cardiac question, the age of the child is always important. However, persistent rapid heart rate accompanied by sweating is something that should be evaluated no matter what the age of the patient. You should discuss this with your doctor. Then a more thorough patient history and family history can be taken and the appropriate evaluation and treatment done.

My child has brackets for a overbite and now needs braces. Do I have to go to same dr that did here overbite or can I go some where else.?

My child has brackets for a overbite and now needs braces. Do I have to go to same dr that did here overbite or can I go some where else.?

Brackets: Brackets are part of a traditional Orthodontic Appliance (braces), so I'm confused by your question. You have the choice of having your child treated wherever you feel comfortable. Please make sure you are seeing a qualified Orthodontic Specialist for Orthodontic Treatment. Please also consider discussing your reasons for transfer with the original Dentist and ask for records transfer.

Should orthodontist pull child's teeth for braces if crowded?

Sometimes: Every patient is different with skeletal and dental presentations that may warrant removal of teeth. I am of the philosophical school of orthodontics that believes that expansion of the lower teeth, if more than just mild, will end in relapse or periodontal breakdown. By careful case selection and understanding growth and harmony of the face, extractions can be very successful.

How misaligned do a child's teeth have to be for her to need braces at age 9?

How misaligned do a child's teeth have to be for her to need braces at age 9?

Individual decision: Age nine and ten are too often referred to as the ugly duckling stage of tooth development. All kind of changes going on in the mouth. Evaluation of the tooth sizes to arch lengthen, a skeletal analysis, and the eruption pattern. What looks awful now may not be so bad as it looks. Two stage ortho is common enough. Early treatment can have advantages is some cases, but not routinely.
