When ought my kid to start wearing braces?
A straight, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime can be achieved with the use of braces. The ideal time to make any adjustments to the bite, jaw, or mouth anatomy is during adolescence when the mouth is still developing. Here are some things you should be aware of before your child starts braces treatment.
Incorrect bites are corrected using braces. If your child has overbites or underbites, braces and/or other orthodontic equipment to move the jaw may be advised. Additionally, braces are utilized to close spaces between teeth and straighten up teeth that are erupting crookedly.
The Value of Beginning Early
Because the jaw bone is still pliable, braces work better on younger kids. The bulk of orthodontic treatment cases typically starts between the ages of 8 and 14, according to the American Dental Association. The specific course of therapy for your child will depend on a variety of variables, such as oral anatomy and the rate at which adult teeth are emerging.

Although your child may find it challenging to envisage going for an extended amount of time without being able to consume sticky, gummy foods or chew bubblegum, braces have a number of positive effects on your child’s general health and wellbeing. Your child’s gum health will be enhanced by straightening teeth and filling any gaps. Later dental issues, such as the requirement for more complex corrective surgeries, can be avoided with braces. When your youngster sees the effects of a straight, gorgeous smile, their self-confidence will also increase.
