Did you know that, regardless of your child’s age, there are a few things that YOU can do now to minimize the time that your child may need to wear braces, once they are old enough?
- Keep an eye on your child and their eating habits. Yes, I realize that you’d expect your dentist to warn you about the effect of too much sugar on your child’s teeth – but I mean more than that.
- Listen for popping sounds when they’re eating.
- Take note if they have trouble opening or closing their mouth.
- Do their front teeth protrude? Those are typically more prone to dental injury due to sports or simply just horsing around.
- Are they losing a lot of baby teeth? Have they had quite a few ‘adult’ teeth come in over the past 6 months?
- Keep an eye out if it seems like they have too many teeth in their mouth, if they complain about their teeth hurting when they chew, or if they have trouble opening or closing their mouth.
