Braces for Kids
When young children come for their regular checkups and dental cleanings we also monitor how their permanent teeth are coming in. In many cases, we can tell years in advance whether a child will need braces in the future. Here at New Heights Dental & Braces we offer a variety of alternatives and orthodontic treatment to our patients who need braces.
Who Needs Braces?
It is very common for kids to require braces to correct bite problems or straighten teeth that are coming in crooked. Some of the most common reasons for needing braces are:
Thumb sucking in infancy can be responsible for bite problems, which can also create issues speaking or chewing. In some cases, braces are needed along with jaw expansion to make room for all the permanent teeth.
We monitor a growing child closely during regular checkups, and we recommend starting orthodontic treatment as soon as possible to avoid further surgeries and other expensive procedures.
Types of Braces for Kids
Thanks to scientific advances and new technology, we can now offer several ways in which to use braces for kids. You don't just have to go with a mouth full of metal and wires anymore. There are new and exciting options available to our patients.
Once we determine you need braces for your kids, we can schedule a consultation and will go over all the information you need to make the best choice for you then go over our financial options. Giving your child a beautiful smile for life is one of the best investments you will make.
