Does Your Child Need Early Orthodontic Evaluation for Braces?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child’s initial orthodontic evaluation occur by age 7 – the time when adult teeth are erupting. During your child’s initial consultation, we evaluate erupting teeth to detect issues such as a possible overbite, open bite, crowding, or gummy smiles. We can tell if your child will benefit from early treatment, as many potential problems may not be visibly apparent until prevention is too late. Beginning treatment at this optimal time not only ensures the greatest result but also means less time and expense down the road.
Parents are usually relieved to learn that “early orthodontics” is NOT about their child getting braces! Rather, overall oral health is affected by proper alignment and symmetry of your child’s smile, jaw, and face. Our early evaluation is not simply about aesthetics but will help guide the growth and development of your child’s jaw and teeth – preventing more serious problems later.
