Children’s Braces at Kling Orthodontics are Helpful Now and in the Future

Posted on: January 1, 2016

Children's Braces at Kling OrthodonticsWe provide children’s braces at Kling Orthodontics and encourage you to visit our office to learn how they can be used to help your child. Orthodontics and braces, in general, have been popular for decades now.  In a way, they have become a rite of passage for children going from their youthful elementary experiences into junior high and high school.  This is a good thing because the stigma of wearing braces has largely gone away.  What hasn’t is the misconception that braces are only for those concerned about the appearance of their smile.  While braces certainly do make your smile more symmetrical and beautiful, they are also beneficial for oral health.

Children’s Braces at Kling Orthodontics Are Good for Oral Health

Did you know that people with crooked teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay?  It’s true.  Since crooked teeth create more places for food to become trapped and plaque to build up, they are also prime spots for cavities to form or infections to develop.  If your child has severely crooked teeth, straightening them will help to improve their oral health both now and as they grow into adulthood.

Simultaneously, orthodontics also align the jaw.  This too is important for oral health.  When the jaw is out of alignment, undue pressure will be placed on specific teeth.  They can become worn down as a result. Furthermore, a misaligned jaw can create discomfort when eating or speaking and even lead to symptoms of TMJ that can become quite painful in time.  Arranging orthodontics for your child today can help to prevent them experiencing these inconveniences as they grow older.

You can Enhance Your Child’s Appearance with Children’s Braces at Kling Orthodontics

In addition to improving the oral health of your child, straightening their teeth will set them up for success.  A beautiful smile does more than make a person look attractive.  A nice smile has been proven to be useful in job interviews, whether or not you are perceived as helpful or a team player and whether other people believe you to be warm and friendly.  These are all attributes that can help your child to become a more successful adult.  Additionally, if you straighten their teeth prior to their high school years, they will have more self-confidence when interacting with their peers and going through a stage of life that can be challenging for many.

We can help your child to look and feel their very best while also becoming healthier in the process.  Our services are comprehensive and we will make a recommendation based upon what we feel is the best way to straighten their teeth and improve their smile.  We will work closely with you and them to ensure that the treatment is successful and that they are comfortable with the overall process.  Working together, we can transform their smile into one that they are proud and confident to show off on a daily basis.  For more information, call and schedule a consultation.
