Braces for Kids

Braces for Kids

Dr. Rekha, Dr. Ine and Dr. Vinay all share a passion when it comes to braces for kids (Orthodontics), having a combined experience in orthodontic treatment of well over 25 years. This means your child will not need to be referred to a specialist (i.e. Orthodontist) in most cases.

  • Why should you bring your child in for an early Orthodontic assessment?
  • It is important for you, the parent, to know that braces for kids has changed and improved dramatically.

    At Midway Dental Clinic, we believe in identifying problems as early as 6 years of age for the following reasons:

    • We can prevent a little issue from becoming a big problem
    • We can greatly reduce your child’s time in braces or even avoid braces altogether with simple mouth appliances during the primary or teen ages
    • Teeth move easier and more quickly when growing as the bones are still developing – this makes treatment quicker and easier
    • A lot of Orthodontic issues are a result of breathing and tongue problems – we will discuss and investigate this with you
  • What are some of the problems your child can have?
    • Crowding or too much space between teeth
    • Missing teeth or teeth which have not come out
    • Cross bites – where the lower teeth are biting outside of the upper teeth
    • Deep bites – where the upper front teeth cover most or all of the lower front teeth
    • Open bites – where the upper and lower front teeth do not meet
    • The upper and lower jaws are misaligned (i.e. upper jaw is too forward; lower jaw is too far back or vice-versa)
  • So, what is the A to Z?

    A consult with us first involves an in-depth discussion of what you and your child want from braces treatment as well as your options. We take full orthodontic records including high-quality, digital photos, digital x-rays and moulds of the upper and lower teeth. The next visit is scheduled to begin braces where individual brackets will be bonded onto teeth to hold the wire. From here, you will be required to visit the clinic every 4-6 weeks for adjustments.

    At the end of it all, you will be provided with:

    • One set of retainers to maintain your straight teeth
    • FREE take-home whitening so your teeth can now be straighter and whiter
  • How long will the braces be on for?
    The braces usually range from 18-24 months depending on the case.

    How much do braces cost?
    Braces costs start from $5,500, and prices will vary depending on what you and your child want.
