Wright Orthodontics dedicates its efforts to providing braces to local children as a way to correct misaligned teeth so that everyone can have a beautiful and bright smile.

At Wright Orthodontics, Dr. Wright recommends that children should have an initial orthodontics exam by the age of seven in order to evaluate crossbites, crowding, and other issues that may be present. Many of his younger Atlanta and Marietta, GA braces patients had their initial consultation a few years prior to getting braces.

Why Does My Child Need Braces?

Your child’s teeth change as he grows. At Wright Orthodontics, we identify any orthodontic issues or the potential of any with your child and then watch his development as he ages. Braces can also guide how the jaw grows, create space, and guide incoming permanent teeth. They also correct misalignment from thumb-sucking and many speech problems that misalignment can cause. Setting all that aside, a child’s self-esteem can be severely affected by having an issue such as a noticeable gap or severe overbite. Dr. Wright provides children with braces in Atlanta and Marietta, GA, and other nearby areas.

What Is the Preferred Type of Braces for Children?

There is no preferred type of braces that is best for children. Several factors go into selecting the type of braces including aesthetics and budget. For children, traditional metal braces tend to be chosen because they are more budget-friendly and our younger patients can change the color of the rubber bands that go around the brackets. As they get a little older, ceramic braces  and Invisalign® become more popular because they are much less noticeable.

Dr. Wright is happy to go over the options during your initial consultation and evaluation to determine which type of braces is best for your child’s needs.

How Much Do Child Braces Cost in Atlanta and Marietta, GA?

The cost of child braces depends on the treatments necessary to correct your child’s orthodontic issues. Following your child’s evaluation, Dr. Wright and his staff will be able to give you more details on the cost of child braces including financing and payment options. For questions about dental insurance, the staff at Wright Orthodontics is happy to help you figure out the benefits allowed for child braces.
