What if my Teen Doesn't Want Braces?
Focusing on the present is what Teens are good at. In fact our primary schools make sure that our children focus all their attention on study or school related activities from the moment they begin upper middle school. Teens just don't have time to worry about straight teeth.
As parents we are responsible for looking beyond the present as we prepare our children for their entry into adult society. We know how difficult finding a good job can be. We also know from experience that a fabulous smile can work in your favor. But how can we work braces into our teen's busy schedule.
The answer lies in good dental hygiene. The reward for taking care of your teeth when you are young is that you will have them when you are old. The return on investment of straightening your teeth as a teen is paid back many times over your lifetime in avoiding dental repair procedures. If your teeth are crooked preventing thorough flossing, or baby teeth refuse to relinquish control, or you got all your teeth but they form everything but a perfect arch then you are going to benefit from addressing your teeth sooner than later.
What Treatment Options does my Teen Have?
- Metal Braces
- Ceramic Clear Braces
- Invisalign Teen more . . .
The above options include an invisible solution, a nearly invisible solution, or one that you can flaunt. Which braces technology you settle on isn't really the point. The best time to move teeth is in your early teens. The health benefits are rarely considered until later in life. Bring the discussion forward with your child and let Dr. Kunik provide you with a considerate and knowledgeable opinion on how straighter teeth could help your child.
