Chilren's Dentist in Narre Warren

Have you been wondering what children’s braces are?
Braces are used to correct the alignment of teeth. They can be used for adults and children alike, but they’re most commonly used on children. The two main types of dental braces are metal brackets and clear aligners. Metal brackets are bonded onto the front surfaces of teeth with adhesive cement or orthodontic glue, while clear aligners are made from a thin, transparent plastic material worn over the teeth like a retainer.

Benefits of Early Orthodontic Treatment For Children

Some of the benefits of introducing Dental braces to your child are:-
Increases the space for crowded teeth to erupt: You can fix your child’s permanent teeth before they even grow in! With this new technique, you don’t have to worry about crooked tooth or crowded tooth. At the age of 6-7, a dentist inserts braces on a person’s jaw so that their mouth is prepared for erupting dental structures. There are no worries about how those will come out later down the road.
Prevents chipping of protruding teeth: Children with protruding teeth need to be extra cautious when playing. This is because they don’t have enough lip coverage, so they’re vulnerable to a knock or fall that could damage their front tooth. That’s why it’s important to get braces.
Resolves Speech Obstruction: When a person has an overbite, they may feel as if the lower teeth are too far back in their mouth. This can lead to whistling while talking, with air escaping through overlapping upper teeth and bottom teeth when creating words or vowels. Braces will be able to improve this issue by correcting the alignment of all top and bottom row of teeth so that each tooth is placed properly for maximum comfort during speaking!
Enhances facial symmetry: Dental Braces are the perfect solution for crooked and misaligned teeth. The tooth movement makes your child’s face look better because it gives a better bite alignment with a straight smile.
Reducing Phase II Treatment Time ( Permanent removal of teeth in the future): Early orthodontic treatment not only reduces your child’s phase II treatment time but also decreases the trauma of protruding teeth and makes way for perfectly aligned permanent teeth to erupt.

Major medical insurance plans do not typically include dental coverage. This is the most common misconception when it comes to braces and orthodontics. To have this type of procedure done, you need some form of supplemental plan that you must purchase separately.

Here are some signs that show your child might need Dental braces:-

  • Baby teeth were lost at an early age
  • crowded (or crooked) teeth
  • Thumb sucking is prolonged
  • Pain in the mouth or jaw
  • Misaligned jaws
  • Spaces or gaps between the teeth
  • Mouth breathing
  • Difficulty in speaking and chewing
Yes, braces move your child’s teeth every day. Braces will need to be on the child’s teeth for 18-24 months. You can start seeing changes in appearance as early as four weeks after getting fit. Still, an average expectation is 2 or 3 months.

The price for orthodontic treatment depends on several factors, including how long and complicated the treatment will be plus what type you choose. That said, here are some guidelines about what kind of money you should expect to spend if you’re looking into a complete set of dental care in Australia:

  • Metal braces (traditional braces): $6,000 – $9,000
  • Ceramic braces: $6,500 – $9,500
  • Lingual braces: $9,500 – $15,000
  • Clear aligners: $6,500 – $9,500

There is no exact age when a child should get braces. As such, parents need to be proactive and visit an orthodontist for their first consultation before the start of school or earlier if they suspect any problems with speech.

The American Academy of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends children visit an orthodontist for the first time no later than 7 years old to evaluate airway, bite and oral habits, and determine whether braces are necessary from this point onwards.

  • Once your child’s braces are on, your orthodontist will be monitoring and adjusting them for a couple of weeks.
  • Your child must have a six-month cleaning by the dentist or orthodontist or as recommended.
