Does My Kid Need Braces?

Reasons to get braces include:

● Overbites
● Underbites
● Overcrowded Teeth
● Crooked Teeth
● Overlapping Teeth
● Gaps
● Speech Impediments
● Open Bites

Teeth that are improperly aligned do more than impact your smile. They can help prevent:

● Cavities
● Gum Disease

When Do Kids Get Braces?

When we were younger, dentists usually waited to recommend braces when a child was a teenager.

However, we have learned that earlier intervention is better. Children’s mouths and heads stop growing around the time they hit puberty. That can make it much more difficult to get lasting changes in their mouths. So, you may be referred for braces for kids when a child is around 7.
