    Don’t let your child’s friends give her all the information she gest about braces.

    Your children have no doubt heard a lot about braces. Friends talk and if your child is getting ready to get braces, he or she is probably talking with classmates. Sometimes kids exgagerate. You child may come home terrified to get braces, or at least rather concerned about the process.

    Getting braces in Vancouver WA can be a traumatic experience for kids, They have heard stories and they are also reaching that age when appearance begins to be so important.

    There are ways you can calm your child.  The best thing you can actually do is to give the prospective brace wearer as much information as possible. Many kids fear the unknown but by explaining as much as you can about the process and treatment you can help your kids be more prepared.

    One thing that can help is to tell your kids that there are actually no shots required for getting braces, which many kids will be happy to hear. Another thing that might help is to let your child know that he or she can show off his or her personality with braces. By adding and changing colors they can keep the treatment fun.

    Be honest and let your kids know that braces can be painful, but also let them know that they might be able to have certain treats for dinner when they get their braces tightened, like milkshakes or something similar.

    These are just some of the things you can do to help prepare your child to get braces, but there are many others. If you or your child has questions about getting braces in Vancouver WA, then click here to contact us or click here to learn more.
