Will My Child Need Braces?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell explains the importance of early orthodontic assessment for children in order to evaluate your child’s dental needs.

Will your child need braces? The answer is most likely, yes. Approximately 75% of children require some form of braces to correct issues such as crowding or misaligned bites. Braces play a crucial role in ensuring proper dental alignment and overall oral health.
I invite you to bring your child in for a free consultation. During this visit, we can assess their dental structure and determine if and when braces might be necessary. We’ll also discuss the best approach and the expected duration of treatment. Of course, there’s always a chance that your child’s teeth are already perfectly aligned, and no intervention is needed.
Regardless of the outcome, our goal is to provide you with a clear understanding of your child’s orthodontic needs. Please schedule a consultation with us so we can help you make an informed decision about your child’s dental health.
