Even the great Hippocrates would have wished he could have got orthodontic braces in his childhood. Braces have become an important part in raising the self esteem and confidence of a child. Children with crooked teeth are known to have low self confidence and are shyer than others. After orthodontic treatment children become more confident are no longer shy to show their bright new smile.
A child must be checked for need of orthodontic treatment at the age of 6 years. Summer break is a great time to start orthodontic treatment so that your child gets comfortable with the new dental device without having to miss classes. When the teeth and the jaw are still developing, it is easier to treat conditions like crowding of teeth. It is important that you take your child routinely to the dentist from an early age.
