Back to School with A Healthy Smile
Summer is quickly coming to an end, which for many means prepping the kids for back to school. There’s books, clothes and new backpacks… but is your child’s smile also ready? Soon the focus will shift to first-day photos in new school outfits to post on social media before the bus whisks them away for another year of friends, learning and fun.
As the new school year kicks off, it’s also a great time for your child’s orthodontic journey at Greater Houston Orthodontics to begin. Imagine how fantastic school pictures will be once treatment is complete!
All children should be evaluated for an orthodontic consultation by age seven, according to the American Association of Orthodontists so if your child is a rising second grader or above, it’s the right time to come and see us for a complimentary consultation.
Some additional clues that let you know an orthodontic visit could help include:
- Your child smiles without showing teeth
- He or she has difficulty flossing because of overcrowding
- You notice chewing or speech challenges (it might be the result of a misaligned bite)
Our practice is focused on building confidence not only as a result of orthodontic treatment but also throughout the process. We offer many discreet options including Invisalign clear aligners, clear traditional braces, and lingual braces, which are affixed to the inside of your teeth and are hidden from view.
This school year, while your kids are growing and learning we can work alongside them, helping to build their confidence through a healthier, straighter smile. Once treatment is complete, you’ll be amazed at the difference.
