Orthodontic work is expensive, but it’s often needed to straighten your child’s teeth. While it may seem hard to find an affordable orthodontist, there are some important reasons to continue the search.
Keep reading to learn about the long term benefits of orthodontics and where to find an affordable orthodontist near you.
Why Should My Child Get Braces?
Childhood orthodontic care is a much more common practice than ever before, and with good reason. “Even three- and four-year-olds can sometimes>benefit from early intervention according to John Bogert, D.D.S. and former Executive Director of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Orthodontics at any stage of life can produce many desirable results, but here are two things to keep in mind when considering braces for your child:
Early intervention reduces long-term problems—Early childhood orthodontics can reduce long-term issues, including those that start as early as adolescence. Children around seven years old may be referred to an orthodontist for a consultation.
Early treatment is easier—Children grow quickly, and that makes it easier for orthodontic treatments to work. Delaying braces until your child’s late teens or adulthood increases the length of treatment needed.
Finding an affordable orthodontist may be a daunting task for many household budgets, but you have an option to make it much easier.
