Braces can fix almost all problems- it's just a question of timing. In most cases, an eight year old is a little young for braces. Your child should be examined by an orthodontist to give you an idea of what needs to be done, and approximately when. READ MORE
Thumb sucking can cause a change in tooth positions depending on how they suck and how much time they do it. Most often upper front teeth move up or forward, and sometimes the lower front teeth are moved back. Also, it could cause the back teeth to be constricted, and could affect the palate as well. It is always a good idea to try to end them sucking when adult teeth are growing in. READ MORE

Hi, Usually, speech patterns are learned, and tooth position doesn't necessarily cause it. Without seeing you and your bite, though, it is impossible to say for sure. If you are not unhappy with your teeth and their appearance, I would speak to a speech pathologist first. Good luck! Dr. Fader READ MORE
No, at this young age, it shouldn't have any effect. Going to sleep with the bottle in his mouth, if the liquid has sugar, can cause tooth decay. READ MORE
It depends on the amount of tooth movement necessary. Minor tooth movement may only require a few months, where more crowding or alignment problems can take up to two years. READ MORE
Braces do not stain the teeth. It is, however, a little more difficult to maintain oral hygiene with braces on. If plaque accumulates on the braces and teeth, tooth discoloration could result. READ MORE
