Perhaps it can be that way. It could be that way with adult person - or at least the teenager, but I am not sure about the kid of the younger age. .Anyway - I am sure that is different for all the kids. As for me - I wore glasses when I was small - and there was some mockery in the school of course.. Well, how else can that be, right?:) But I was a really brave kid - and the mockery stopped pretty fast) Anyway - I do not think that this kind of mockery can really influence the kid.. I mean - in the long run. He will forget it all pretty fast. That is a good trait in all kids - I wish the adults would have it)

I think almost every second teenager have some troubles with their teeth. But it is okay to wear braces for some time, like for 1 or 1,5 years. You have to assure your son that if he will not wear braces he will have ugly teeth and a wrong bite and he will be not handsome and no girls will follow him. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think you are mistaken here, my friend. It really can - and it really does. What that means is not that this kid is having the nightmares till the end of his days. It works much more imperceptible. That undermines the kids self confidence - and it does have huge influence on his future life! So if there is any way to avoid that mockery and bullying in the school - it is really better to do that! In other case your kid might face the bad consequences of this later in his life - and it is really hard to change the old habits. So watch out for that.

i understand your child because he is afraid that other children would make fun of him or even bulling and i am sure that it would not be very pleasant for him, but i think that in any way you shall make your child wear them because it is needed for his health. now he does not understand the importance of them but in the future i am sure that he would change his opinion in it because he would have really a wonderful smile and he would just be happy of it. i think that you shall convince him and explain to him how important it is. i wish you good luck in it.

I think you are right. the most part of the fears and complexes that we have in the adult age - were founded in our childhood. Some words that the kid heard, some attitude of some people - all that is being gathered and accumulated in the child's consciousness - and it gives it's fruits in time. You need to be sure that the kid is not holding any kind of offence, that he is not being bullied or mocked... if you are going to miss these things - it will be much more difficult to overcome this in the future. I hope my kid is not going to have this kind of secrets from me.

that is a very good idea, my friend :) :) there is nothing bad of having braces in the childhood, cause it is much worse when you are an adult. almost all kids wear these things and i find nothing wrong about it. they only help people to have nice teeth, so, why generally not let your kid to wear them? ;) ;)

I don't see any problems in it.. Braces are for your sake!!!!! Don't forget about it. I also wore it and I can say that I even don't regret. I agree that it would be a good idea to google for some celebrities, who are wearing or wore the braces. When he will see that it is not a shame, he will accept the idea. By the way besides, you need to explain him the reason for wearing those. that in several years his teeth will have not a very fancy look, and that this is just the right time to solve the problem. firstly it is painful and you can't eat everything besides soup and something soft. Buuut in a week everything will be okey.

Frankly speaking it is understandable that first of all for all people who wear braces have some hesitations. But I had the same and my parents helped to cope with this hesitation you know. It is true that sometimes the child understands that it does not deprive a man of his appeal, but rather is designed to add it. A similar effect can be achieved by paying attention to the attractive boys and girls who do not hesitate to smile with braces. My parents persuaded me that after braces I would have beautiful smile and they showed me examples of famous people by the way.

First of all you should sit down and talk to your son. You should convince him that he should wear them for some time for his teeth to be healthy. You should support your son and to help him to do a right decision, but if he hesitates too much you can go to another specialist an to listen to one more point of view.

You see, there are two sides of the medal in this case. I have a friend he is a dantist, and once he told me a very shocking thing right about braces. You see braces are not cheap, and of course many parents who are affraid about their children do this procedure. But there is one "but". My friend told me, that many children's dantists insist on braces even when there is no need for them, because this procedure is not cheap. It is hard to believe, but it is really so. If you don't really sure that your child needs braces, then go to several more dentists and listen to their verdict, and only then make the decision concerning braces.
