FAQ'S

Frequently Asked Questions

The perfect time to get orthodontics for your child is when they are still growing and developing. Metal braces work best if the patient has not gone through puberty yet so that their jaw can adjust easily into its new position; this will help prevent any discomfort or pain from occurring once it’s done! The average age at which our patients should be considered to receive exceptional dental care like orthodontic treatment ranges between 9-14 years old (but no earlier than 6).

Unless you visit a dentist who is skilled in early orthodontics regularly, you may be surprised that they are a possibility for your child or that they would benefit from them. The following are some of the warning indications that your child may need early orthodontic treatment:

  1. Protruding teeth
  2. Crowded teeth
  3. Breathing through the mouth, snoring, or grinding teeth
  4. Thumb sucking
  5. Underbite
  6. Speech problems

Early orthodontic appointments are generally similar to other orthodontic consultations. During this initial dental visit, our experienced team will conduct a thorough visual check to identify any potential issues. Following that, pictures are taken to document dental treatment progress, and x-rays are performed to reveal any internal problems with the jaw bone or teeth. If an orthodontic appliance is required, impressions will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where a device tailored to your child will be created.

The majority of your child’s first orthodontics appointment will be spent outlining what to expect from the comprehensive treatment and what our targets are. In addition, we’ll talk about the cost of effective treatment, whether your dental insurance will cover it, and your payment choices.

The duration of treatment time your child will need to wear orthodontic braces is determined by the orthodontic problem the dentist is trying to correct, but the average is roughly two years. Following that, your child may wear a custom-molded retainer—a small, rigid piece of plastic with metal wires or a thin piece of plastic in the shape of a mouthguard.
Absolutely! Dental braces should not restrict your child from participating in any sport. However, they should always wear a dental appliance like a mouthguard when engaging in a contact sport such as rugby or hockey to protect the teeth from direct blows.

The cost of children‘s braces is mainly influenced by how long your child will be required to wear them and the type of braces prescribed by the dentist. Traditional braces cost between $4,500 and $8,000 for children, depending on the type of treatment and the duration of the orthodontic treatment.
