As a parent, you know what’s best for your kids. However, you also know all too well how hard it can be to get your kids excited about any kind of dental procedure or medical treatment that will benefit them. Orthodontic treatment is no exception to this. After all, what kid wants to have metal in their mouth? But getting your kids excited about braces is far from impossible. In fact, thanks to fun options for braces, there is plenty for your kids to get excited about when they start braces.
The fun doesn’t stop with the different bracket shapes. Your kids can pick out their favorite colors to use for their ligatures, which are the bands that attach the wires to the brackets. If they want to really complete their team-themed smile, they can add the school’s colors to their Mascot Braces. Or, they can get in the spirit of the season by picking holiday-themed colors for their bands. They can even get bands that glow in the dark, perfect for Halloween braces!
Since these bands are replaced regularly, your kids can choose different color combinations at each appointment.
Get Your Kids Excited About Their New Smile
Of course, there is also a lot to get excited about when it comes to the results of having braces. Be sure to take the time to explain to your kids just how great their smile will look once their braces are off. They’ll get to show off their straight smile with confidence once they complete their treatment.
We’re sure your kids aren’t fans of getting fillings or needing to get crowns on their teeth. Fortunately, your kids shouldn’t have to deal with this nearly as often after getting braces. Since braces straighten teeth and make it harder for food to get stuck in between them, there’s less risk for tooth decay. They’ll also love how comfortable their bite feels once the crookedness is fixed and any underbite or overbite is eliminated. Between their improved smile, better oral health, and additional comfort resulting from straighter teeth, your kids have a lot to get excited about with braces.
Your kids can get even more excited about braces by having all of their questions answered and seeing different orthodontic appliances during their free consultation. Contact Charleston Orthodontic Specialists today to get started!
