Does My Child Need an Orthodontic Appliance?
Your child may need an orthodontic appliance depending on the type of developmental concerns they might be facing. For example, a space maintainer, which could be removable or fixed into place, can help make room for erupting permanent teeth. Additionally, a retainer is crucial to wear after traditional braces come off. This appliance makes sure that their teeth remain in their newly straight position and don’t drift back to their crooked position.
