We recommend an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7.
As a parent, you want the best for your child. That includes healthy teeth and a beautiful, vibrant smile. The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Early detection and treatment gives your child the edge - a much better chance for natural and normal dentofacial development. One advantage of having the doctors at Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics for your child’s dental home is that we monitor their growth & development from their very first appointment and on a regular basis allowing us the opportunity to recommend the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time.
By working with the natural growth instead of against it, we can prevent problems from becoming worse, and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles!
Studies have shown that people who have straight teeth are more likely to smile more. This leads to a greater self-esteem which may lead to a more fulfilling life.
