Why You Should Fix Your Child’s Crooked Teeth

orthodontics Lone Tree

Lone Tree parents want what’s best for their children, but some can’t always provide everything their children need when the family budget is tight. If your child has crooked teeth and you are on the fence about braces, we encourage you to read this post.

1. A beautiful smile with straight teeth boosts your child’s self-esteem.

Young children with crooked teeth may not notice that anything is wrong, but eventually they will realize that their teeth don’t look right. Straight teeth make the whole face more pleasing and attractive. If your child is self-conscious about an unsightly smile, he or she will be reluctant to smile. A serious demeanor could influence the way he or she is treated by peers.

2. Crooked teeth can impact the bite.

If you suspect that your child’s bite is not aligned, we invite you to make an appointment with Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center. Drs. Dr. Almeida can evaluate your child’s bite and make recommendations to see a specialist if required.

3. Crooked teeth can influence normal speech development.

4. Correcting a child’s teeth with orthodontia is speedier and easier when the jaw is young and flexible.

5. Crooked teeth can cut down your child’s ability to eat a healthy diet.

Misaligned teeth can make chewing and eating difficult. Children need a variety of foods but may miss out on essential nutrients if they can’t chew raw vegetables or meat, for example. If your child only eats soft foods, his/her jaw may not develop normal size and strength.

6. Misaligned teeth can damage the gums and underlying bone.

7. If crooked teeth cause malocclusion (bad bite), troubles with TMD (Temporomandibular Disorders) can result.

TMD is a harmful condition affecting the jaw joint.

8. It’s easier to clean teeth when they are straight and uncrowded.

When uneven teeth begin to crowd together, it becomes problematic to make essential daily cleanings effective. And, when your teeth aren’t cleaned properly, troubles with plaque build-up, cavities, and gum disease generally result.

9. If the child’s crooked teeth are not fixed while they are young, the problems may compound and become worse with age.

Severely crooked teeth generally influence well-being and quality of life. For example, chewing troubles can lead to ulcers, and gum disease increases the risk of stroke and heart disease.

10. There are many new types of braces.

Ceramic, self-ligating, and lingual (invisible) braces are some of the new orthodontia options. In some circumstances, invisible braces can be just as effective at correcting teeth as the conventional type.
