Properly aligned teeth are very important. While a straight smile is nice to look at, proper alignment is about more than looks. Straight teeth and jaws will actually contribute to a healthier life overall by preventing tooth decay, gum disease and other health problems. Start your kids on the road to healthy, beautiful teeth by visiting Dr. Danny Bass, the leading provider of children’s braces in zip code 33414.
How Soon Should I Visit?
Did you know that malocclusions, or bite problems, can be detected as early as 2-3 years old? Many parents put off orthodontic care until their kids are much older, but we can actually prevent a lot of problems before they begin by starting care early. That’s why we provide FREE annual exams for our little patients! If your child isn’t old enough to begin orthodontic care, we’ll provide yearly check-ups to make sure everything’s growing the way it should be. This will help us to identify any problems early and provide preventative care.
What Causes Crooked Teeth?
You might not notice your child’s malocclusion until he’s a bit older, but movement actually starts fairly early. Sometimes crooked teeth are caused by genetic predisposition to conditions like crowding, extra teeth, missing teeth, large teeth, or wide spacing. Sometimes crooked teeth are caused by bad habits like tongue thrusting or thumb sucking. In some cases, there may even be a less obvious cause like enlarged tonsils or adenoids.
Whatever the cause though, we’ll help you to find the best solution. If you’re ready to get your kids started with children’s braces in zip code 33414, come and visit Dr. Danny Bass for treatment!
