Smile – Best Facts and Myths 2016

Smile. Middle school is a sensitive time in a child’s life. They become independent while beginning to struggle with the issues of popularity, bullying, and their own bodies changing. By 13 years old, most kids have lost all of their baby teeth. While this is not a sensitive topic for them, how their adult teeth grow in may be.

Consequences of No Smiles

Kids who are embarrassed by their teeth do not smile often. While their circle of friends may not notice, other children and teachers at school may think that they are shy, conceited or maybe that they aren’t paying attention. Not smiling has physical effects as well. When people smile, their bodies release endorphins which help them feel happy and less stressed.

Help Your Child Smile

Parents talk to their children about what kinds of clothes and shoes they want to wear to help them feel more confident. It’s also especially important to talk to kids about how they feel about their teeth. Orthodontia is, of course, not just a cosmetic issue. But the cosmetic can definitely out-weigh the functional aspects of getting teeth corrected in a middle schooler’s mind.

Parents should ask their child how they feel about getting orthodontic treatment which could include braces, a retainer, etc. They may have avoided talking about it because they are apprehensive about wearing braces or because they thought seeing an orthodontist was too expensive.

No matter whether they express positive or negative feelings about their teeth, scheduling an initial orthodontic evaluation with an orthodontist is best for the child. Type and length of treatment, as well as cost and financing options, can be discussed at this first visit. It may help them to feel more at ease and be reassured that they can have a beautiful smile.

If you are interested in an orthodontist visit for your child or yourself, please consider contacting King Orthodontics, for the smile of your life.
