Braces for Kids
The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Early detection and treatment gives your child the edge – a much better chance for natural and normal development.
One advantage of having Dr. Prater or Dr. Bre for your child’s dental home is that they monitor their growth & development on a regular basis. Our parents truly appreciate having orthodontic treatment done in our office. This allows them to coordinate cleaning and check-up appointments with ortho appointments. By working with the natural growth instead of against it, Dr. Prater and Dr. Bre prevent problems from becoming worse, while giving your child a lifetime of beautifully healthy smiles!
Studies have shown that people who have straight teeth are more likely to smile more. This leads to greater self-esteem which may lead to a more fulfilling life.
