Early Treatment

The American Association of Orthodonists recommends that all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Here's why:

  • Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.

  • While your child's teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect.

  • The orthodonist may identify a developing problem with your child's bite and, if necessary, begin treatment before future problems arise.

  • Early treatment may prevent or intercept serious problems and achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

  • Early treatment may guide jaw growth, lower the risk of trauma to protuded front teeth, correct harmful oral habits, improve appearance, guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position and create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face.

  • Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you'' be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.
