The role of a parent is ever-evolving and can never be truly be defined since it can encompass a lot of duties. One of those duties deals with making sure your child has the best smile that he or she can have. This is what a good orthodontist is committed to. Your orthodontist is there to help make this part of your job a little easier in several effective ways.
A Great Smile Matters
Ensuring your child has a great smile is not only good for his or her self-esteem but also positive in the long-run. You may not believe this, but a smile can have the following effects:
- A person with a great smile is usually seen as trustworthy.
- People with great smiles, and straight teeth, may have a higher chance of being promoted.
- A smile with issues like a misaligned jaw or crooked teeth may not have the same effect.
These are just some of the reasons why it is recommended you deal with any of these issues as early as possible. There are many effective routes that can be taken, like the use of braces. It is better to start this type of treatment as early as possible so that your child does not have to deal with any of these issues later in life.
Of course, some parents may not want their children subjected to the issues normally associated with braces. By issues, we are referring to name-calling because children can be a little cruel. You do not have to worry about this since there are other options like Invisalign. This orthodontic apparatus has the same effect on the teeth that braces might have, except no one will be able to tell since you cannot see the invisalign aligners.
Dr. Stephan Tisseront has an orthodontic practice in Reston, Va., where he treats children, teenagers and adults. Tisseront Orthodontics has top-of-the-line diagnostic equipment to determine if orthodontic treatment is necessary. Patients at Tisseront Orthodontics might need to wear:
