Why Does Your Child Need Braces?
Overcrowded, crooked, overlapping teeth and an overbite are some of main reasons your child may need braces. Did your child suck their thumb consistently? That could be another reason to consult with County Dental about getting braces. We help children and young adults at any age feel comfortable with their teeth.
What Age Should My Child Get Braces?
Any age can benefit from orthodontic treatment. The ideal time for braces is between 10 and 14 years of age. This age range is best because your child’s head and mouth are still growing prior to that. This means the teeth are now ready for straightening and developing that bright and happy smile.
Undergoing a Orthodontics Consultation for Braces
Orthodontists will then determine if the condition your child has requires braces. If so, they can also tell you about the appropriate treatment options as well as the length of time they will be required to wear braces.
