Braces for Kids

It is recommended that a child come in for their first orthodontic appointment by age 7, especially if obvious alignment issues such as an overbite, underbite or overcrowding are present. If your child is a good candidate for braces, beginning the process early can help ensure a successful outcome. This is because a child’s teeth and jaw are still developing at this point and will be more malleable.

Your child may need a headgear appliance or to have teeth extracted prior to being fitted with braces. Your child’s specific treatment plan will depending on the type and severity of their malocclusion.

At Burnaby Dental Studio, we offer orthodontic services for both adults and kids, and we can work with you to formulate a treatment plan for your child based on their needs and your budget.
