Orthodontic Braces – A Healthy Reason to Smile

dca-blog_kid-braces-school-bus

An orthodontist is a specially trained dentist who can straighten teeth and align jaws with devices such as traditional orthodontic braces, retainers, and other treatments. Tooth and jaw disorders can be hereditary or related to tooth decay, accidents, or personal habits. Problems like overlapping teeth, crooked or crowded teeth, improper spacing, developmental issues, or injuries to teeth or jaws fall within an orthodontist’s range of expertise. Correcting problems with braces can improve your child’s overall dental health by making tooth decay less likely, and having a straight and beautiful smile will improve his or her self-esteem. 



When Should Children Visit an Orthodontics Clinic?

While there are no specific age rules or requirements, most orthodontists recommend evaluating a child for treatment before age seven. An early treatment plan doesn’t mean that your child will get braces immediately. Your orthodontist will know when it’s time.

What Happens During the Initial Visit? 



Your child’s first visit to the orthodontics clinic will be similar to a visit with his or her regular dentist. It will include a manual examination, and x-rays will be taken to determine the positioning of developing teeth and jaws. If needed, the orthodontist will make an impression to assist in the diagnosis and treatment plan. Prepare to answer questions about your child’s dental and medical history and any tooth or jaw symptoms that are occurring now.

How to Orthodontic Braces Work? 



Braces work by applying consistent pressure to teeth to slowly move them into the desired position. They are typically worn for one to three years. Your child may also need to wear headgear or a retainer as part of treatment. Once braces are in place, your child will need to visit the orthodontics clinic for check-ups every few weeks. During these visits, your orthodontist will make any needed adjustments to brackets or wires.
