Questions About Braces From Moms And Dads Like You

When Should My Child First See The Orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child gets his or her first checkup by an Arizona orthodontist by age seven. Some orthodontists in Arizona begin braces and orthodontic treatment much sooner than that. We do not. Why? Because years of research and experience show that most children gain nothing by beginning braces before second grade. Rarely, a family dentist or physician recommends that we see a younger child in order to assess them. Usually, parents that bring their young kids to us for an evaluation often sigh with relief to hear that braces and orthodontic treatment can wait for a while. If you feel unsure about your own child, please contact us for more information!

Can We Put Off Treating Our Child With Braces?

We cannot make your decisions, but we strongly recommend you never put off braces and orthodontic treatment if your child needs it. In doing so, you’ll take a chance of your young one needing extractions or surgery later in life to completely fix their smile. For best results, we recommend that your child has a full evaluation by their 7th birthday. We offer a free initial consultation for braces, as it is crucial to get expert advice about treatment needs, types of braces, and timing before making this important investment for braces.

Will My Child Still Be Able Enjoy The Foods And Activities They Love With Braces?

We have a variety of braces to recommend that will fit your child’s lifestyle. Some braces and orthodontic treatment are removable and some stay fixed in place. If you choose fixed braces for a child who plays sports, they will need a mouth guard to protect their new smile. Kids who play wind instruments usually adjust to braces quickly and easily. A child who wears fixed braces will need to avoid hard and sticky foods and cut fruits and veggies into sticks and wedges. Bear in mind that we have a variety of braces and orthodontic treatment options, including virtually invisible braces!

Will Other School Kids Make Fun Of My Child With Braces?

Braces have become a way of life for so many, that most children now view them as a rite of passage on their way to teen years. Many kids actually think braces are “cool.”
