When it comes to our children, we want the very best for them. So as parents, we make sure that their dental and orthodontic needs are being met at an early age so that they’re prepared for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
We also know that our children might not see it that way. Some children are upset or worried about the fact that they need braces or other treatment to straighten their teeth or correct other orthodontic issues. If they are feeling down about having to get braces, here are some ways to make them feel better.
- Remind them that having braces makes them unique. Not everyone in their class will have them, so it’s a characteristic that will make them stand out among their peers.
- Let them know that there are ways to make their braces fun, such as WildSmiles, where they can create their own unique and creative look with cool bracket shapes and fun colors.
- Make sure they know that it won’t be forever. The younger they are when they start getting orthodontic care, the quicker and easier it usually is to fix the problem. Early treatment is always best.
