The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an orthodontic check-up no later than age seven. Even though most people think of preteens and teens when they think of braces, there are good reasons your child should get an orthodontic evaluation much sooner.
The Importance of Early Orthodontic Treatment
- While your child's teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect. Dr. Cohen will be able to recognize potential problems early and correct them before they become more serious. This saves you and your child not only time, but also money.
- Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and the erupting teeth while some baby teeth are still present.
