Why Eight Years Old is the Ideal Age for Braces

Parents may be caught off-guard by the recommendation that their child get braces at age eight. However, during this stage of growth, it is the most opportune time to direct their teeth and jaws into the proper position, side-stepping the need for surgery later on in life.

The Importance of Treating Children’s Dental Issues

It’s easy to believe that children’s teeth will grow and align properly on their own, but this is not the case. Neglecting dental issues in young children can lead to tooth damage, deformation, and more extensive dental work such as veneers and composite bonding to correct these problems.

Early preventative treatment is the most cost-effective and efficient option. At this age, we can guide the growth of a perfect smile, correct bite alignment and jaw placement. By addressing these issues early, we can prevent unnecessary wear on the teeth and ensure the best possible outcome for your child. This also helps maintain gum health and prevent gum recession, making it easier for children to keep their teeth clean and healthy.

While visiting Dr. Kieran Daly for a consultation he will take x-rays and 3D scans to have a thorough look into your child’s orthodontic issues and will guide you through the best course of action to adjust all their issues. He can also show you many other cases he has treated over his 25 years of experience as an orthodontist in Dublin, Ireland.
