The Right Time to Use Dental Braces on Children

The Right Time to Use Dental Braces on Children

Hello Friends of Hermina, did you know that the installation of braces on children must be in accordance with the time and of course with the instructions of the experts.

What is the best age to use braces?

Friends of Hermina, before placing braces on children, Sahabat Hermina must also ask her readiness because not all children dare to do dental checkups, especially early installation of braces. It is recommended that children do a dental health evaluation when they reach the age of 7 years. This examination is performed by a dentist with additional training who specializes in aligning and straightening teeth, or an orthodontist. However, regarding the installation of braces in children, it depends on the severity and cause of the child's tooth misalignment. That way, the appropriate course of action can be determined afterward.

What are the Terms of Use for dental braces

Friends of Hermina Bitung, the installation of dental braces should be viewed with these categories, namely:

crooked teeth
Teeth that grow stacked or overlapped
Abnormal position or arrangement of teeth and jaws (malocclusion)
Milk teeth are broken or fall out too soon
Teeth are damaged due to accidents or bad habits by children, such as finger sucking
The use of braces according to the points above are categorized, so don't conclude that you need to install braces without consulting an orthodontic specialist.


Reduce Sweet Foods, Still Hot Or Too Cold

Food or drink that is still hot or too cold can risk damaging tooth sensitivity. Furthermore, it can even create cracks in the teeth that allow bacteria and germs to easily enter the tooth structure.

Brush your teeth at least 3 times a day

Brush your teeth at least 3 times a day, especially before going to bed at night. Brushing your teeth before going to bed serves to clean the food residue left on the teeth, so that it doesn't grow and can prevent the development of bacteria that eat the leftovers.

Lots of Consumption of Fresh Fruits

Consuming fruit also helps to clean dirt and food residue that sticks to the teeth. For this reason, the more you consume fresh fruit, the more healthy your teeth will be.

Use Mouthwash

Gargling with mouthwash a maximum of 2 times a day will help keep your teeth healthy and white. The fluoride content in mouthwash is good for maintaining healthy teeth and preventing cavities.
