How to figure out  if your child needs braces? Newington, CT


Deciding if your child needs braces is no mean task for parents. This situation is quite tricky because there is no clear cut way to find out if your child needs braces. A visit to the dentist will help you clear your doubts  about if  or when your child needs braces. The reasons for needing braces are  many and need not always mean  that there’s something drastically wrong with your child’s teeth.

There are a few key indicators  for when a visit to the dentist would help your child. One of the most prominent ones  is your child losing  baby teeth irregularly . Sometimes, there is a chance that the jaws and the teeth are not proportionate to the rest of the face. In such instances it helps to take your child to the dentist to rule out any alignment abnormalities.

If your child’s teeth happen to be misaligned, then it is best to visit a dentist as early as possible. This ensures the process of alignment correction starts immediately. Children’s gums and bones  are quite soft and  therefore can be easily molded.

Quite a few dental problems can be attributed to one’s genes. Some of them can be corrected with braces.  The earlier you get your child treated for issues requiring braces, the better. Also, for some treatments, it is best to take your child to the dentist when some baby teeth are still present while for certain others, it is good to visit the dentist when the permanent teeth have formed and are still growing.
