At Hutta and Price in Gahanna, Ohio, we understand the importance of providing people of all ages with high-quality orthodontic care—especially young patients whose teeth are still settling into place! You may have some questions about the right orthodontic treatment for your child. That’s why we’ve compiled this comprehensive guide on braces for children to help you make the best choices for your child’s smile.
Your first visit to the orthodontist
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children visit the office of a trusted orthodontist before they reach age seven. While this may seem young, at seven years old many children have a mix of baby and adult teeth, which enables orthodontists to address any dental issues that may arise in childhood. The earlier your child visits the orthodontist’s office, the earlier they can help to ensure your child’s dental health.
Braces provide clear dental benefits
Braces are beneficial for helping kids to smile more comfortably and confidently. Straightening teeth with braces often helps to alleviate oral pain and improves the appearance of a patient’s smile. Braces can help to improve jaw alignment issues such as an overbite or underbite, adjust teeth that have grown into the wrong places, and address any extra teeth your child may have as a result of irregular growth.
Healthy teeth and a happy smile
For many children dentistry can feel intimidating. If your child dislikes going to the dentist, they’re not alone! At Hutta and Price, we cultivate a warm and welcoming environment so that your child will feel secure from the beginning of their first office visit. They’ll complete their orthodontics journey with healthy teeth and a healthier, happier smile!
