Alia, is a naturally shy, 10-year-old girl who would keep to herself during recess. Her classmates make fun of her and call her bugs-bunny because her teeth protruded. One day she came home crying uncontrollably, and she refused to talk to her mom or dad about what happened. After long persuasion, she opened up to her mom saying “I wish my teeth were OK too.”
Alia is an example of a child whose self-esteem was undermined by an unfortunate tooth imperfection. Many children are born with teeth that are less than perfectly positioned and shaped. What parents should know is that early orthodontic diagnosis and treatment can help. Orthodontic works are not only meant to align teeth but enable them to function properly and effectively. Braces can help your kids get rid of those Dracula teeth.
“At times, we don’t realize how these things can impact our kids. Our decision of bringing her to The Dental Roots was surely the right one as we have seen tremendous change in her smile after it. She is now undergoing an orthodontic treatment at their center and is extremely happy about it. She likes to talk about her dentist to all her friends”, says Alia’s parents.
It’s never too soon to start taking care of your children’s oral health. A child can be examined for any orthodontic evaluation at the age of 6-8 yrs when their permanent teeth start to erupt. It’s important to understand the importance of perfectly aligned teeth. Our team makes sure your kids continue to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful – something they can be proud of.
