If you are a parent, then you are probably all too aware of the need for good preventative dental care, and this is something that can easily be provided by Parrock Dental and Implant Centre. Good preventative dental care starts early, as it is a great idea to get your child used to visiting Dr Trivedi or another Kent dentist at least by the time they have all their primary teeth.

will be able to keep an eye out for any potential problems, and can advise you as to whether they will need braces in Kent. Sometimes it may be advisable to have orthodontic treatment sooner rather than later, as it could lessen the amount of time spent wearing braces when they are older. Braces are sometimes regarded as being something that is important for cosmetic reasons only, but this is not true. If your child has their teeth straightened then they will find them much easier to care for throughout their life, and this will help to decrease the likelihood of dental diseases such as cavities and gum disease.

Make Sure Your Child Is Committed to Having Straighter Teeth

Parrock Street has several orthodontic systems and the dentists here will be able to recommend the most suitable one to rectify your child’s orthodontic issues. One thing that is important to bear in mind is that wearing braces requires commitment from both you and your child. You will need to bring them in at various intervals so we can check the progress of treatment, and we know this can sometimes be an issue for busy parents.

It also require quite the commitment on their part, as if the brace is fixed in position then they have to be prepared to spend time brushing their teeth and flossing thoroughly as otherwise they could end up with cavities or even gum disease, which is not a good look for anyone. If they have removable braces such as Invisalign Teen, then they do need to wear them for the specified number of hours each day, as otherwise the treatment can progress as planned. One good thing about Invisalign Teen is that the aligners do have built in wear indicators, making it quite easy for your dentist to check they have been worn for long enough.

If you can both make this commitment, then the benefits of having a straighter smile are well worth it, and later on they may even thank you for making them wear a brace.
