Does My Child Really Need Orthodontic Braces?

dca-blog_article-43_are-orthodontic-braces-right

The ancient Greeks were responsible for inventing the earliest versions of orthodontic devices, but modern braces share the same basic goal. Braces move teeth into a more appropriate position by applying constant pressure over a long period of time. An orthodontics clinic provides treatments such as braces and retainers correct common cosmetic defects like crooked teeth and structural abnormalities like overbites. The two types of braces most commonly used today are traditional brackets, which are attached to the front of the teeth and lingual brackets, which are attached to the back of the teeth.

Can Orthodontic Braces Help My Child?

Many children get braces because their parents are primarily concerned with aesthetic issues, but wearing braces offers your child a number of other benefits. Having straight teeth allows him or her to eat and speak more effectively. Because they are easier to clean, straight teeth are less likely to decay. They also reduce the pressure on gum tissues, and improve overall oral health. Addressing malocclusion earlier in life makes it much easier to correct, and the effects of improved self-confidence can make a dramatic impact on your child’s social life and emotional well-being.

How Can I Find the Most Trusted Orthodontics Clinic?

To find highly rated pediatric orthodontists in Dalton, ask your family dentist, your friends and neighbors, and others about their experiences. A qualified dentist or orthodontist can help you make the decision of whether or not to get braces for your child. If your child has severely crooked teeth or has other serious problems that could interfere with his or her ability to eat and speak properly, the decision to wear braces can be a life-changing event. If only minor cosmetic flaws are present, you may wish to weigh the pros and cons.
