The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up with an orthodontist by age 7.
The 7 & Up Check-Up gives us the opportunity to begin monitoring for several conditions. Some issues can be more effectively treated at an early age. Others may be appropriate to let remain until adolescence when all, or most, of the permanent teeth are present. Detection and correction of potential problems can ultimately help save time and money by possibly shortening the overall duration of treatment, even reducing or eliminating the need for tooth extractions or surgery.
Regular monitoring of a child's growth and development is always FREE!
