The Sooner the Better: Braces for Kids

We all love to see our children grow, learn and move on to their fullest potential. Braces for kids are just one of those certain obstacles families go through. For many kids, braces are a rite of passage. It is common for kids to have braces, so when it’s time for your kids to get braces just remind them that it will all be worth it in the end.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, a child should receive their first orthodontic screening by the age of 7. At Aday & Coombs Orthodontics Specialists, we firmly believe that early intervention by age 7 is the best route.

Early intervention for childhood braces has its obvious rewards: the saving of time and money for families, children are out of their braces by their teenage years. And since we can address issues before they get serious then there is less time wasted on issues that have already taken root by waiting.

Braces for kids by the time they are 7-years old will impact them in the long run: they won’t have to worry about orthodontist appointments while they are studying at college or living whatever dream life throws them.

It is also common for teenagers to begin their journey with braces, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Teenagers are at the point when they realize the rewards of braces, and how a beautiful, healthy smile will impact them for the rest of their lives.

Our services are open to all people of all ages. You should never be discouraged from pursuing the smile of your dreams, and we will be there for you every step of the way.

Both my kids have received orthodontic care under Dr. Aday. My kids have always received care above and beyond the norm, and his practice is a true model of what medical care should be. Each visit is thorough, comprehensive, informative, and completely comfortable. From the front desk with their efficiency, and their friendly demeanor, to the assistant (Tara) who takes the time to remember small details of my kids dental history, to Dr. Aday, who have worked in such professional manner to help my kids with their complex needs – this practice is excellently run.

Most of the staff has been with Dr. Aday for over 10 years and that helps my kids, who don’t think visiting a dentist is fun, see familiar faces and reduce their anxiety. Certainly glad to have been referred to this practice.

My kids have been patients of Dr. Aday since 2008.

I would like to express my satisfaction with Dr. Aday and his staff at Aday & Coombs Orthodontic Specialists. My son, Diego, had some serious work that needed to be done and I was skeptical if they could help us. We had moved from Virginia where work was started on Diego’s teeth but we were quickly referred to Dr. Aday after we got settled into Las Cruces. Diego has been on this journey for quite some time and the results are amazing. Dr. Aday knows exactly what he is doing and how to get the right results. From the beginning Dr. Aday has informed us on what would be best for Diego and what bumps we might come across. We have never felt lost or out of the loop. Dr. Aday’s staff has been more than helpful! From the front office, to billing, and all the orthodontic assistants, they have all been such a wonderful help and have helped make this whole process smooth. None of this would have been possible without any of you. Thank you Dr. Aday, and staff!y’re awesome! They always take good care of my two kids. And they’re gentle to all their patients.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Aday and his ENTIRE staff. From day one all the way through the follow ups after Breanna got her braces off, we have always been treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism and the results are amazing!  Thank you so much for all that you do!
