A Parent’s Primer on Braces for Kids

Does your child have crooked teeth, poorly-spaced teeth, or a misaligned bite? Then braces may be just what the dentist ordered. Learn about family orthodontics and how to handle treatment.

The Options in Orthodontics

When it comes to straightening teeth and correcting a misaligned bite, braces are still the best bet. But braces have come a long way from the bulky metal brackets of the past. Today, there are many choices in braces for kids that are more comfortable and less noticeable, with some clear and tooth-colored options that are practically invisible. When a child needs braces, the options they have include:

  • Metal/Stainless steel
  • Clear Plastic
  • Clear or tooth-colored ceramic
  • A blend of materials

The Time for an Orthodontist

According to experts in family orthodontics, there is no standard age for children to get braces. Instead, this is determined by orthodontists and their prescribed treatment plans. In most cases, the child’s dentist will refer you to an orthodontist when they detect a problem that can be only corrected by orthodontics. But in general, dental experts recommend that parents have the child evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven since most kids begin treatment between the ages of nine and 14.

The Cost of Braces

If you think it’s impossible to find affordable braces, think again. See, the cost of braces for kids varies greatly depending on the child’s specific needs, preferred type of treatment, and the location of the family orthodontics practice. If cost is a concern, be assured that many orthodontists in Dalton accept insurance, various payment plans, and discount drug plans like DentRite. To find the most affordable braces for your child, consult several orthodontists in Dalton to see which offer financial options that suit your specific needs.
