2. Intraoral examination: including six categories of Anger's occlusion abnormality, horizontal vertical bite, anterior teeth malocclusion, posterior teeth misplacement, space allocation and developmental abnormalities, some of which have little change, some projects It will change dramatically with age.


Normal occlusion relationship QuickTime? and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.


2. When did the gingival correction treatment begin?

According to clinical research, the rate of malocclusion from 7 to 16 years has increased from 42.1% to 81.4%. A large reason is due to acquired factors.

If parents can do preventive work, the incidence of malocclusion will be greatly reduced. Current methods for treating occlusal malocclusion include: space maintainers, early blockade therapy, early tibial growth adjustment, early fixed orthodontic devices, and traditional fixed orthodontic devices; the most important thing to prevent occlusion is to take good care of them. Deciduous teeth, correcting the concept that deciduous teeth will be replaced without treatment, because they maintain the space needed for permanent teeth germination. If the deciduous teeth are lost prematurely, whether it is eclipse or extraction, it will begin to lose the space of the teeth, so we The deciduous teeth should be maintained as much as possible to the time it should fall off to maintain the maximum available space for permanent teeth.
