The Straight Scoop on Braces

dca-blog_kid-braces-school-bus

Braces can straighten out a number of dental concerns. Find out whether braces are the best fit for you and your child.

Braces Basics

Braces are dental devices that are attached to the teeth with wires and brackets. Braces apply gentle pressure to straighten teeth, as well as move the teeth and jaw into proper structural alignment. They are also used for cosmetic reasons. Dental treatment is provided by specialists called orthodontists. Your dentist can recommend the best orthodontist in Pembroke Pines for your personal needs.

Perfect Patients

Essentially, anyone who desires to have straighter teeth or improve their bite may be a good candidate for braces. Braces can be for any age group, but the best orthodontist tip is that treatment should begin in childhood to address developing problems, as well as avoid later treatment. Orthodontists recommend that children have an orthodontic evaluation as young as age of seven. Yet only a thorough evaluation by an orthodontist can determine whether braces are best for you or your family.

Treatment Times

It’s never too early or too late to see an orthodontist, but there are optimal times to begin treatment. According to the best orthodontist recommendations, treatment typically follows one of these formats:

  • The first phase of treatment focuses on the developing dental problems in children. This is called interceptive orthodontics and is best when performed at a young age because it can be easier to make permanent changes while teeth, jaws, and bone are still developing. The child’s conditions will determine whether braces are best at this stage. Following this first phase, a resting period is essential to allow permanent teeth to fully emerge.
  • The second phase of treatment begins around the age of 12 or 13, when it is decided whether a child needs to get braces. If an orthodontist is first seen after this second phase, then care must be customized to meet the older patient’s needs and may include dental extractions to create space for teeth to be properly aligned.

Remember, braces can benefit you at any age. Find the best orthodontist and discover the difference that braces can make for you.
