Orthodontics in San Francisco


Orthodontics patient in San FranciscoIn a perfect world, everyone would have perfect teeth. This is not a perfect world, and everyone is not blessed with a perfect set of teeth. Some individuals will need to have orthodontic work done to fix any dental irregularities they may have. A lot of parents struggle with deciding when is the right time to send the child to the orthodontist. This answer will vary from person to person, and orthodontist to orthodontist.

According to American Association of Orthodontics children should visit an orthodontist by the time they are seven years old. Those children who wait until after the age of 10 have a harder time correcting growth irregularities. If a dentist decides that a child needs braces, the treatment process will begin.

If your child has braces, it is necessary for them to brush their teeth at least three times a day, and to floss daily. To prevent bacteria buildup, which can lead to gum disease and cavities, you should schedule more frequent dental checkups for your child while they have braces.

Once the braces have come off, your child will be able to smile with more confidence. Confidence is important for all individuals, especially those who are younger. A healthy smile is a beautiful smile!
