Why Is Children’s Orthodontics Important?

Bringing your children to a Pure Dentist twice a year helps you determine if and when they need children’s braces. The experienced dentist can do a full evaluation for braces as needed. Here are some orthodontic conditions that point to the need for braces for children.

  • Crooked teeth
  • An overbite or an underbite
  • Incorrect jaw position
  • Jaw popping or clicking
  • Accidentally biting the tongue or the side of the cheek often
  • Having a hard time chewing food

Early Intervention Goes a Long Way

Most Dentists recommend seeing a child at age 7. That is the age when their permanent teeth start coming in. Issues such as overcrowding, a misaligned bite, missing teeth, or wrong places of eruption will become apparent at this age.

Seeing a Dentist at an early age does not necessarily mean your child will get children’s braces immediately. However, the skilled guidance and monitoring of a Pure Dentist early on will bring a host of benefits, including:

Proper Jaw Growth and Development - Early detection of overcrowding teeth or a misaligned bite may be corrected early on and prevent teeth extraction later. It can also promote proper jaw growth and development.

Prevent Teeth From Shifting - Not all baby teeth fall out when they are supposed to. Sometimes, they remain intact as the permanent tooth grows in front of it. That may cause shifting and misalignment that is preventable at the onset.

Address Current Issues - The Pure Dentist can address current issues on the initial check-ups. A treatment plan can be discussed to correct these issues.

If there are no issues, then you can schedule a follow-up visit in succeeding years.

Children’s Orthodontics FAQ's

Choosing the Right Orthodontic Appliance for Your Child

So, how do you go about choosing the right appliance??

Pure Dentists prescribe braces for children for clinically documented and clearly visible reasons. If your child is a candidate for teeth alignment solutions, here are a couple of orthodontic appliances you may opt for your child.

Fixed Braces

A fixed brace is an orthodontic appliance that cannot be removed. It is made up of brackets, wires, and rubber bands permanently fixed onto your child’s teeth. Fixed metal braces are proven to be effective and they yield predictable results.

Invisible Braces

Invisible braces are a more discreet alternative to fixed metal braces. Examples of invisible braces are ceramic braces and Invisalign.

Retainers

In some cases where braces are not needed, retainers can do the job. Retainers are prescribed to close spaces between teeth or to move a tooth in place. They are made of plastic or metal and are customized for each patient.

Whatever orthodontic appliance you prefer, it is best to consult a Pure Dentist for a professional assessment of your child’s teeth. See an experienced dentist today and give your child the gift of a perfect smile.
