Norwalk pediatric braces
At Children’s Dental Group, we correct crooked or misaligned teeth using orthodontics and provide patients with general and cosmetic dentistry. Orthodontic treatment is the practice of aligning teeth, and malocclusions are known as bad bites or problems with the bite. Our Norwalk pediatric braces are done in a relaxing, fun environment so that kids aren’t anxious coming in for their appointments.
A child’s first orthodontic exam should be no later than age 7. The teeth and gums need to be healthy and in good shape before we recommend the right kind of braces. For kids, it is important to prevent future problems and for your child to receive early interceptive care if needed. Interceptive orthodontics allows us to create room for crowded and erupted teeth and helps reduce the need for tooth extraction as well as create reduced treatment time for braces. Bad bites that are not treated soon enough can cause more damage and potential future expensive dental bills. Children should have their first orthodontic exam done as early as possible, in order to check for future problems and correct bite problems before they become more serious. Our Norwalk pediatric braces help to correct this and other issues.
The main goal of orthodontics is to prevent a bad bite. Bad bites can affect the way a person eats, chews and even smiles. If left untreated, a bad bite can result in protruding or crowded teeth and speech impediments. It’s important to take care of these problems before crowded teeth cause problems that can end up resulting in tooth decay. Untreated tooth decay may result in gum disease, bone loss and tooth loss.

Most people associate braces with teenagers. While this assumption is not unfounded, children and adults can get braces too. For children, interceptive orthodontics or pediatric braces are often only used for medical reasons. If your child needs Norwalk braces then we here at Children’s Dental Group can provide you with the pediatric braces they need to improve their dental health.
Children should see a dentist regularly, and about as often as adults do. From the time a child begins teething they should see a dentist about twice a year or once every six months for exams and cleanings. For kids, it’s important that a pediatric dentist is there to monitor their dental health and development during these early years. The way that baby teeth develop has an impact on how secondary or permanent teeth will develop later on. Even though baby teeth will eventually become loose and fall out, they act as placeholders for the permanent teeth that will replace them as kids get older. Normally, teenagers get braces because they are still growing but they are more likely to have all of their permanent teeth, so treatment is easier and braces can mold the way their teeth and gums continue to develop. By kids may need pediatric Norwalk braces if they have severe bite problems, malocclusions, or crooked teeth that could cause major issues if left untreated early. Our experts here at Children’s Dental Group can diagnose and treat these issues.
Sometimes kids who get pediatric Norwalk braces need braces again when they’re older but this isn’t necessarily the case. They may end up needing other oral work done, but either way the goal is to improve the child’s health and dental structure. If you know your child needs this kind of care, please call us here at Children’s Dental Group to set up an appointment with us today.
