How to Tell if a Child Needs Braces


Have you ever wondered if your child needs to have braces?

Every parent seeks the best for their child. From their health to education, we want to give them the best possible care. When something is visibly concerning, we get anxious. When we see that their teeth are misaligned or crooked, we may eventually think of getting braces for them.

But before worrying too much about our child’s teeth health, an orthodontic evaluation is appropriate by the time they turn 7 years old.

Kids can get braces for a variety of reasons aside from misaligned teeth. Overlapping or overcrowding teeth can be one reason. When there is a difference between the size of the top and bottom jaws, there could be a “bad bite” or malocclusion.

The best time to get braces depends on the cause of the misalignment and the severity of the condition. Since humans eventually lose their baby teeth, treating the temporary tooth may not be efficient in the long run – except during cases identified by your orthodontist.
