Early orthodontic and treatment and check-ups can save you and your children a lot of hassle in the long run. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive a check-up by age 7 to increase the success of any needed dental treatments. At this age, orthodontists can assess the child’s situation to determine if there are any underlying or potential orthodontic related issues.
There are several reasons for early treatment:
- Prepare a child’s mouth for naturally aligned permanent teeth.
- Decide if braces are necessary for your child
- Fix minor spacing or alignment issues by removing baby teeth to allow the permanent teeth to come in straight or by using spacers to give incoming teeth more room to grow.

It is very important to catch any ortho-related issues early to help ensure a happy, healthy smile for children as they get older. With years of experience, we are a top choice for early treatment.
