When should my child see an orthodontist?
While any age is a good age to receive orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. This allows your orthodontist to monitor growth patterns and correct problems sooner rather than later. It's important to visit a trained orthodontist for your care. Unlike a general dentist who offers braces, an orthodontist has received years of specialty education and training in tooth movement, growth and development, and bite function. As an orthodontic specialist, our doctors have the expertise you deserve.
