Braces Q & A

Tooth Castle Pediatric Dentistry

When is the best time for my child to get braces?

There isn’t a specific time that’s best for a child to get braces. Many children have braces sometime between late elementary school and high school. The ideal time for braces varies from child to child, so parents should have their child regularly see the dentist at Tooth Castle Pediatric Dentistry to have their teeth cleaned.

During routine cleanings, your child’s dentist can perform initial checks to see if braces should be considered. Having straight teeth is one of the goals of braces, but the dentist at Tooth Castle Pediatric Dentistry will look at more than just your child’s smile and examine the movement of their jaw and look for impacted, missing, or overcrowded teeth.

Does dental insurance provide coverage for braces?

Many dental insurance plans provide at least partial coverage for braces. You should check to see what coverages their plan affords for your child. Sometimes, a plan’s coverage has limitations, depending on the provider.

Children who do not have dental insurance may be eligible for a financing plan that can make braces affordable for the parent. The team at Tooth Castle Pediatric Dentistry can discuss this with you during your child’s orthodontic consultation.

How long will my child need to wear braces?

The length of treatment will depend on your child’s specific needs and treatment objectives, as well as their oral health and development, the type of braces they have, and other factors. Duration of treatment can be discussed during the consultation appointment to avoid any surprises.

During the consultation appointment at Tooth Castle Pediatric Dentistry, you can learn about the different types of orthodontic treatment options available so that you can make an informed and confident decision about your child’s dental care. You'll also learn what to expect throughout every phase of treatment.

Today, children have more options than ever before when it comes to having straighter, healthier, more beautiful smiles. The consultation appointment provides the ideal opportunity to learn about these options and to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have about the treatment process.
