At Which Age Kids Should Start Wearing Braces?
in United States

Greetings!

With the use of candies, chocolates, sugary drinks and junk food etc, parents are already struggling hard to maintain proper dental care of kids. Especially when it is about the kids from 5-8 years with the braces. I am not sure how kids who brush their teeth with the help of parents or in the supervision of moms would able to keep a better oral hygiene. That's why I think it is better to put braces after the age of 13 but my sister doesn't agree with me who is also a mother of 8 years old girl. She just want her girl to start wearing braces from now to get better results. In this regard, we found this article https://pvpd.com/when-should-you-consider-braces/ that refers to start considering orthodontics at the age of 7. 

I also found this article https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/braces/expert-answers/dental-braces/faq-20058192 to support my argument which is about the use of braces from 8 to 14 years. What are your thoughts in this regard? Secondly, my concern is about the oral health. I don't think with the use of candies, cookies, cakes etc, is it possible for kids with braces to take better care of oral and dental health? Especially, I am worried about the brushing. Do you think brushing is possible with braces?

Arguments

  • Commonly, what happens with braces is that parents' desire for their kids to have perfect teeth gets in the way of what the children really need and what the experts would say. As a result, braces are often given out prematurely or when they are not needed. The title of the debate comes with an assumption that all children should have braces. Why? It is not vital that kids should have perfect teeth later in life. As long as they can eat easily and the positioning of their teeth does not cause any major inconveniences, there is no need for braces in most cases.

    I know all kids don't need to wear braces but I am only trying to refer the kids who have issues with teeth. 
  • The age usually depends on who the kid is. If the kid has clean and straight teeth then he should wear them later or not wear them. If he has teeth in very irregular positions then he should wear them at the age of about 11.

    I acknowledge that, but kids are often misdiagnosed as having issues with their teeth when they do not and this is my point.

    I believe that if a child does genuinely have issues with their teeth, they should not be given treatment until all their teeth have finished growing. I will be backed up by the majority of UK dental professionals and orthodontists here.
