Children’s Orthodontist in Merrillville, IN
Having straight teeth is a huge contributor to being happy and confident with a person’s smile. If your children have misaligned teeth, the best solution is to put them into braces as soon as possible so that their teeth can be straightened and re-aligned from an early age. Recent research has shown that the earlier your child gets braces, the easier it is for them to maintain their healthy smile.
While your child will still be given a retainer to wear once their braces have been removed, the sooner you have their braces installed, the sooner they can be enjoying a healthy, straight, and beautiful smile. While they may not pay much attention to it now, they will certainly appreciate the fact that braces are behind them once they get into junior/senior high school and beyond.
A straight smile can do wonders for a person’s confidence, and straight teeth will keep your child smiling far into the future.
Our staff is trained and experienced when it comes to working with children. Our kid’s orthodontist can answer any questions you or your child may have and design a treatment program that best suits their needs. You will be asked to bring your child in a few different times before the braces can be removed so that they can be tightened and adjusted. These adjustments are essential to the effectiveness and outcome of your child’s braces.
How long your child will need to wear their braces will depend upon their treatment plan and the complexity of their re-alignment. Your child’s orthodontist will be able to answer any questions you have and help you determine what treatment plan is right for you and your child.
