Chances are if your child is about to get braces they probably aren’t happy. Nobody wants a hunk of metal in their mouth. They also probably have a lot of questions. It’s important both you and your child go into the treatment journey calm and confident. Let’s take a look at some ways you can adequately prepare your kids for braces from your orthodontist in South Florida.
When it comes to orthodontic treatment, there are many options out there. It’s best to talk to your orthodontist about the most suitable options and treatment plan for your child. It’s also important to keep your child in the loop when it comes to the options that are out there and the option that will be best for them.
It’s safe to assume that your child will not want braces. They will have to wear the braces for several years and let’s face it, who wants to have metal in their mouth. It is important during their fragile state to remind them of the benefits. While the 2 to 3 years that they will have to wear braces seems like a lifetime, remind them that in the grand scheme of things the time spent wearing them will result in a lifetime of a healthy and straight smile.
