Everyone always asks Dr. Glaser, adolescent braces specialist, the question, “When is the best time for my child to get braces?” Well, according to Glaser Orthodontics, orthodontic treatment starts at different ages, depending on each child’s needs. Just as no two kids are the same, no two sets of teeth are ever the same, so never consider a specific age the time for kids to get braces. Adolescent orthodontic treatment in Westchester should be considered for every child, no matter their age.
At Glaser Orthodontics in Westchester NY, childhood braces can and should be applied to avoid dental issues later in life. When kids get braces, they have less of a chance of needing tooth removal in the future as well as creating facial symmetry and room for crowded, erupting teeth. According to The American Association of Orthodontists, kids should be evaluated at around the age of seven to see if orthodontic treatment is needed. Although seven is a good age, it isn’t necessarily the age for every kid. If you have a child in Westchester that you think would benefit from braces, contact Glaser Orthodontics at 914-739-6400 or visit our website to schedule your consultation.
