What Is The Right Age For Kids To Get Braces?

It is normal to not have a complete idea on this subject and that’s why many parents who come to us do ask this question most often. Although the braces can benefit in shaping your teeth at any age but an ideal starting age is about 12 to 13 years. As a child is still at a growing age (at 12 to 13) and that means the timing is right to fix the crooked teeth and making the process of braces more fruitful. At this age, while the mouth and head are still growing, it is easy to shift the teeth.

How Long Will Kids Have To Wear Braces?

Three factors to consider here and that would be what type of braces your child will require, how complex is the process, and what treatment plan is most suitable. The placement of braces will also be decided by your orthodontist once they have evaluated the whole case. Normally it takes 18 to 30 months to correct the teeth and every 4 to 8 weeks braces can be adjusted by your orthodontist to get the right alignment of the teeth. Once the braces have helped to set the teeth in the right position, your child will need retainers for a temporary period of a couple of months to two years to prevent the teeth from going back to before treatment position.

Do Braces Hurt?

Once the braces are set, your child will need to follow up sessions and on every session, the interconnecting wires of braces will be tightened for better results. This tightening can cause little discomfort as it puts pressure on the brackets and that’s how they shift teeth in the right alignment. So, it is normal to feel slightly sore for a day or two after every follow up session.

Who Assists During The Orthodontic Treatment Process?

Generally, your child’s pediatric or general dentist will refer to the orthodontist and thereon they will administer the process. A treatment plan will be set and accordingly, you will get the appointment dates for braces and subsequently for follow up sessions. Your child’s jaw will be examined, what type of teeth spacing the child has, if the bite is fine, jaw setting and after all these factors are determined only then your orthodontist will suggest the braces type and how long it will take to get the teeth in the right position.
