One thought on “What if My Child is Not Ready For Braces?

  1. Arti says:

    Children younger than seven usually have no adult teeth (or at least very few). Having malocclusion does not guarantee a child will need braces. This helps parents to know if they need to begin saving money for braces or other procedures in case they are needed. If your child is not yet ready, you can get an estimate of when they will be ready for braces. If you haven’t had a consultation before age 7, the next best time for a full orthodontic exam is tomorrow at 3:00 p. m. All jokes aside, now really is the best time to ask an orthodontist when your child should have braces. You’ll also receive an estimate of any future costs to expect. Without a number of permanent teeth to evaluate, it’s difficult to determine if a child will need braces.
