Getting braces often feels like a rite of passage for most kids. It’s a sign that they’re growing up, and while braces aren’t known for being comfortable, the end result of straight, beautiful teeth is worth the effort.

However, as a parent, it’s not the easiest task in the world to convince your pre-teen children that metal brackets and wires on their teeth are in their best interests. So how can you get them excited about braces as well? Let’s see what Dr. Eric Thiede here at Black Lake Dental in Olympia, Washington, has to say.

Different options

Thanks to advances in technology, our team is now able to offer more orthodontic options than ever before. Your kids aren’t stuck with the traditional big brackets and heavy wires to straighten their teeth. Services such as Invisalign® and ceramic braces offer more discreet straightening options than ever before, minimizing the visual effects braces have on one’s appearance.

Great results

Another aspect of orthodontics on which you should focus when discussing the topic with your children is the great results they’ll see at the end of the process. It seems daunting and never-ending to start, but it goes by quickly and they’ll soon be left with a great smile.
