So What You Saying?
For millions of families around the country, braces and childhood tend to go hand-in-hand. This leaves many moms with lots of questions about what life with braces will be like for their child. Common questions range from when kids should first see the orthodontist to what types of food are off limits. The more parents are know what to expect, the less they will fear the process, and be able to help their children enjoy and get the most out of their treatment experience.
“Getting braces doesn’t have to be a scary process, but it can be if you haven’t had some of the more common questions answered ahead of time,” explains Dr. Karson Kupiec, a second-generation orthodontist at Kupiec Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, located in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. “The last thing you want is to go into the treatment process without feeling comfortable. When parents feel comfortable and confident about it, so will the kids. They often mimic their feelings.”
Here are some of the things that every mom must know before their child gets braces:
“Getting braces can be a little nerve-wracking, but the fear of the unknown is usually the worst part,” added Dr. Kupiec. “Asking plenty of questions and prepping physically for your appointment should go a long way toward increasing your comfort level. The thing I love most about what I do is seeing my patients with a perfect smile and the new-found confidence to match!”
