When should I bring my child to see a Phoenix area orthodontist?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that you should bring your child to an orthodontist for their first exam for braces as early as age 7. While this may seem too early to get braces, it is a crucial time in your child’s growth and development. Premier Orthodontics can see how your child’s face and teeth are developing to determine if there are any potential problems and when braces may or may not be needed; now or in the future. Parents find it comforting to learn that most children do not need any orthodontic treatment at age 7.
Can we put off braces?
Putting off braces can result in a need for more invasive treatment later in life that may not completely fix a smile without extractions or surgery. Timely treatment with braces is most effective for achieving best results.
Will braces limit my child’s activity pursuits and diet?
There is a variety of types of braces. Premier Orthodontists will look at your best options with you and determine which braces fit your child’s lifestyle: Removable or fixed. Fixed braces will require mouth guards for sports. Patients who play wind instruments will have a short adjustment period to new braces. All fixed braces require certain dietary limitations, avoiding hard and sticky foods, to prevent brackets needing replacement.
Do you offer family discounts for braces?
At Premier Orthodontics, we do offer family discounts when you have more than one child requiring braces. Additionally, you can also get your braces at a discount if your child gets braces at Premier Orthodontics.
Will braces limit my child’s activity?
Typically braces are seen by school children as a rite of passage to becoming a pre-teen or teenager. Oftentimes they are actually perceived as “cool.” Premier Orthodontics offers Invisalign® as an invisible orthodontic treatment option. In fact, Phoenix area orthodontist, Dustin Coles was chosen as Invisalign®’s top provider for winning Invisalign®’s Summit Case Shootout with successful treatment of a particularly difficult case.
Additionally, you can speed up treatment by up to 50% by utilizing AcceleDent®. Learn more about AcceleDent during your Premier Orthodontics Smile Analysis.
