Orthodontics Q & A

When is the best time for a child to get braces?

There isn’t an ideal time that’s best for a child to get braces. A lot of children have braces sometime around late elementary school and high school. The best time for braces varies from child to child, so you should have your child visit My Kidz Dentist regularly to have their teeth cleaned.

During a routine cleaning, the dentist can monitor your child’s teeth to see if braces should be considered. Having straight teeth is one of the goals of braces, but the dentists at My Kidz Dentist will look at more than just the smile, examining the movement of the jaw and checking for impacted, missing, or overcrowded teeth.

Does dental insurance provide coverage for braces?

Many dental insurance plans provide at least partial coverage for braces. You should check to see what coverages your plan affords for your child. Sometimes, a plan’s coverage has limitations, depending on the provider.

Children who don’t have dental insurance may be eligible for a financing plan that can make braces affordable for the parent. The team at My Kidz Dentist can discuss this with you during your child’s orthodontic consultation.

How long will a child need to wear braces?

Treatment length depends on your child’s specific needs and objectives, as well as their oral health and development, the type of braces they have, among other factors. The duration of treatment can be discussed during the consultation appointment to avoid any surprises.

During the consultation appointment, you can learn about the different types of orthodontic treatment options available so that you can make an informed and confident decision regarding your child’s dental care. You can also learn what to expect throughout every phase of treatment.

Today, children have more options than ever when it comes to having straighter, healthier, more beautiful smiles. The consultation provides the opportunity to learn about these options and to ask questions and discuss any concerns about the treatment process.
