Early Orthodontic Treatment
Did you know? The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children see an orthodontic specialist for a check up no later than age 7.
Why? An orthodontist can start noticing problems that may be developing, even when baby teeth are present or even if the teeth look straight. Some of these may require monitoring, while other problems may require intervention.
Sometimes when treated in an early stage, a second comprehensive stage of orthodontics is no longer indicated or it is much more expedited.
