When should my child see a Specialist Orthodontist?
It is best to have your child come in for an initial orthodontic consultation around the ages of 7-9 years old. At this age, your child’s back molars have most likely grown in, and their bite has been established. It is a perfect time for a Specialist Orthodontist to assess their smile.
While your child may not need any treatment at this age, we can screen for potential issues and plan the best time to treat them in the future. By doing this, we can catch issues before they begin, saving you time and money on costly treatments later in your child’s life.
