Children Teeth, What age would a child get braces.

Monday, Jul. 26th 2010 9:34 AM

My daughter is only nine but her teeth were really crooked and I and her dentist as stated she may need braces.  Right now she has a space maintainer in hopes to avoid braces.  If she does need to have braces would that be when all her baby theet are out?  I see no point in putting braces on baby teeth.   Yet is almost seems that is what her dentist is hinting at.

    Hard to say I know children that got braces while they had their baby teeth. The braces help keep the teeth in place as the adult teeth come out.

    You should talk to an orthodontic as a consult. Some orthodontic dentist will offer free consults and it will be very helpful information for you to have. You may also want to consult your dental insurance carrier to confirm you coverages for braces.

    My son did not get braces until all his baby teeth were out. In the mean time he too had the space maintainers. However it is not uncommon to get braces before hand if it is needed.
