Orthodontics and Braces

As children grow, their smiles change. If your child’s smile is less than perfect, we invite you to call our orthodontist in Brewster, NY today to schedule a complimentary orthodontic consultation. You will leave your appointment knowing whether braces would help your child, how long treatment may last, and how you can fit the cost into your family budget.

Braces are an investment into your child’s future. Having a beautiful, straight smile can build a child’s self-confidence as well as enhance their overall oral health. Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to chew, speak, or keep the teeth clean. Braces can fix these problems and help prevent future ones.

What is Early Orthodontic Treatment for Children?

Did you know the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children as young as seven visit an orthodontist? The orthodontist will check to make sure the teeth are coming in correctly and the jaw is forming properly.

Early orthodontic treatment, which is also called Phase I Treatment or interceptive orthodontic treatment, aims to correct certain problems with the child’s bite or jaw growth. It’s designed for children ages six to 10 and takes advantage of the natural jaw growth happening during those years. It can also create spacing for permanent teeth to come in properly and address damaging habits like thumb sucking, which can cause children to have buck teeth.

Best of all, early orthodontic treatment can shorten the amount of time a child may need braces later.

Why Might My Child Need Braces?

In the simplest terms, children need braces to move their teeth into proper alignment. A bad bite, called a malocclusion, may not just create a crooked or unflattering smile. It can also lead to speech problems, eating difficulties, gum disease, and an increased likelihood of cavities. Some children also say they feel embarrassed by their crooked teeth, which can lead them to avoid smiling or talking.

Tooth and jaw alignment problems can be the results of genetics, or could result from an injury, thumb-sucking, or early or late tooth loss. Fortunately, braces can fix a wide variety of orthodontic problems including:

  • crowding
  • crossbite
  • overbite
  • underbite
  • open bite
  • protruding teeth (buck teeth)
  • spacing issues
  • jaw misalignment

The first step is to come in for a complimentary orthodontic consultation. It’s free to find out if braces or another type of orthodontic treatment would help give your child a beautiful, straight smile.
