Growing up, you probably often heard that orthodontic braces were social death. Kids with braces were often portrayed as being made fun of or as somehow “ugly.” Indeed, this can sometimes happen. To the point that hearing your own child will need braces may make you think twice about going ahead with it. After all, they’re not exactly inexpensive either.
Correct a misalignment
But letting your child have orthodontic braces can change their life in many positive ways. For one, the whole purpose of braces is to help correct a misalignment in your child’s mouth. This will help prevent health problems such as gum disease and cavities down the road. All that pain and money now will save you and your child (when they grow) so much money in the long run.
When your child goes through the trial of dealing with braces, they learn a lot about themselves and their self-esteem. Indeed, braces can help grow self-esteem as opposed to destroying it. Sure, your child may be a bit self-conscious for the first few weeks, but as they get used to having braces they learn how big of a non deal it is. In time, their friends and classmates will also get used to it. This in turn exposes them to more people who may not be exactly like them, and that is always a good thing when you’re growing up.
Orthodontic braces also teach your child responsibility. It takes a lot of work to clean and maintain braces, and if you’re both going through all that trial and money to get them, you better bet you’re both overseeing the care of them. When your child is in charge of something so important as their health, it teaches them to responsibility they need to get through life later. Really, the worst that comes with braces is a kick in the bank account and discomfort for a little while. The benefits far outweigh the negatives.
