Alternatives for a Beautiful Smile
While we don't recommend fake braces, it's important to note that some kids can benefit from getting real braces. Consulting with a dentist or orthodontist is a great way to figure out if your child is a good candidate for dental braces. Your orthodontist can help you decide whether traditional or ceramic braces are right for your child.
Traditional braces. These are much lighter and easier to manage than ever before. Traditional braces slowly move teeth into the correct position by putting pressure on them.
Ceramic braces. They work similarly to traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear, ceramic material. Ceramic braces are less visible than traditional ones.
Your child might feel scared or have concerns about the procedure of getting orthodontic braces, but rest assured that your orthodontist will make it as painless as possible.
If your child doesn't need braces, this could be a great time to set a good oral hygiene routine, which should include brushing twice a day and flossing daily. This can help your child benefit from a clean and healthy mouth and a bright smile. It can also be an excellent time to discuss the risks associated with following trends, especially with your child's teeth.
Ultimately, it's probably best to avoid fake cosmetic braces or any other trend that mimics an orthodontic appliance. They might seem trendy and affordable, but they can prove very costly in the long run!
