When investing in something that is going to take hard work and possibly be a large financial commitment, especially when it involves our children, you want it to be as simple as turning to someone you can trust. What we at Waco Moms always recommend is finding someone who not only uses the best technology, but a practice that has been trusted in our small community for over 50 years.
Here are 3 Reasons to Consider Orthodontic Care:
Crooked teeth can still be happy smiles, but straight teeth give confidence throughout a person’s entire life. Getting teeth adjusted early can spare some of the insecurity that comes with high school and adult life.
Straight teeth are easier to clean. Discoloration or cavities tend to creep where they can get comfortable, being tucked between teeth that are crowded together. Crooked teeth can increase your chances of having plaque and decaying food particles build up on and between teeth. This plaque and decaying food can lead to dental abscesses, periodontal disease, gingivitis and tooth loss.
A misaligned bite can also contribute to speech impediments, breathing problems and tooth wear. Orthodontic care is just as much about someone’s bite as it is their esthetics.
When should moms consider looking into orthodontic care for their children? No age is too late, but the pros at Collins & Greer suggest you make your first consultation for your child around the age of seven. However, teeth move throughout our lives and without perfect maintenance, things can go crooked. Even as a mom, we can also experience insecurity or difficulty keeping our teeth clean. Whether it be in your professional or personal life, a pretty smile is within reach thanks to new technology with clear aligners.
Orthodontic care can be at any age and our friends at Collins & Greer can give you the guidance you are looking for.
