Braces for Kids
There are many reasons to consider orthodontic treatment for your child other than esthetics of their smile. Crowded and crooked teeth are hard to clean, which may lead to future dental problems. Malocclusion, or a bad bite, can affect speech, chewing ability, prematurely wear down the teeth, and possibly lead to TMJ problems in the future. There are also emotional benefits to your child, the biggest of which is their increased confidence and happiness in their smile and overall appearance.
