Braces for Kids

Dr. Katie Murphy, Dr. Taylor Darmetko and associates provide braces to straighten your child’s teeth and improve their oral health and smile. We will evaluate the position of your child’s teeth during their regular appointments to determine if braces are needed, and if so, when they should begin treatment. Call Aspire Dental Health at 781.660.7800 to schedule your child’s appointment with our dentists and learn more about braces for kids in South Weymouth, Massachusetts.

The childhood years are a great time for orthodontic treatment, as children are still growing. This allows us to guide the eruption of their teeth, align the teeth and jaws into their optimal positions, and address any potential problems at an earlier stage. Our dentists can offer braces to help align your child’s teeth and give them a healthier and more beautiful smile.

Braces are an excellent orthodontic treatment option for almost every child. They work to gradually and gently realign your child’s teeth using a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. The brackets are attached to the front surfaces of your child’s teeth and then connected with the wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, your child’s teeth will gradually move into their proper positions.

Braces are commonly recommended to treat orthodontic issues such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Problems with the bite (crossbite, open bite, underbite, overbite, etc.)

Your child will visit our office regularly throughout their orthodontic treatment so that our dentists can make sure their braces are adjusted correctly and their treatment is progressing as planned.
