What Parents Need to Know About Braces for Kids

Is your child faced with crooked teeth, badly-spaced teeth, or bite misalignment? Then your child may need braces. Discover all the facts about this advanced dental treatment.

Orthodontics Options

For more than 50 years, braces have been the treatment of choice for children with crooked teeth and poorly-aligned bites. But braces have come a long way from the bulky metal brackets of the past. Today, there are many choices in braces for kids that are more comfortable and less noticeable, with some clear and tooth-colored options that are practically invisible. When a child needs braces, their options include:

  • Metal/Stainless steel
  • Clear or tooth-colored ceramic
  • Clear Plastic
  • Mixture of materials

When to Take Your Child to an Orthodontist

According to experts in family orthodontics, there is no standard age for children to get braces. Instead, this is determined by orthodontists and their prescribed treatment plans. In most cases, the child’s dentist will refer you to an orthodontist when they detect a problem that can only be corrected by orthodontics. But in general, dental experts recommend that parents have the child evaluated by an orthodontist by age seven since most kids begin treatment between the ages of nine and 14.

The Cost of Care with Braces

Many parents think that braces are very expensive, but the truth is that affordable braces have become a reality. See, the cost of braces for kids varies greatly depending on the child’s specific needs, preferred type of treatment, and the location of the family orthodontics practice. If cost is a concern, be assured that many orthodontists in Stockbridge accept insurance, various payment plans, and discount drug plans like DentRite. To find the most affordable braces for your child, consult several orthodontists in Stockbridge to see which offer financial options that suit your specific needs.
