Even though most people think of orthodontics for pre-teens and teenagers, the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that children visit the orthodontist no later than age 7.
Treating teeth with orthodontics can and should be done in young children, whenever necessary and possible.
Why is this?
Think of braces and orthodontic treatment for children as early intervention to address the most serious issues, before they become permanent problems.
Benefits that orthodontic treatment provides our youngest patients:
•Permanent teeth are gently guided into a healthy position
•Lower the risk of trauma to misaligned teeth
•Guide jaw growth to a proper relationship
so that meeting of the lips is physically and aesthetically improved
