Many parents don’t know what to look for as their children get their adult teeth in. Dr. Maresca suggests looking for malocclusions (“bad bites”) like those illustrated below, may benefit from early diagnosis and referral to an orthodontic specialist for a full evaluation. Our office is conveniently located in Rocky Point if you have questions or would like to come in for a consultation.



In addition, if you notice any of the following in your child, check with Dr. Maresca:
• early or late loss of baby teeth
• difficulty in chewing or biting
• mouth breathing
• jaws that shift or make sounds
• speech difficulties
• biting the cheek or the roof of the mouth
• facial imbalance
• grinding or clenching of the teeth
Final treatment decisions should be made among the parent, child’s dentist and Dr. Maresca. Please don’t hesitate to come in or call our office at (631) 744-8400 if you have any questions.
