According to the American Association of Orthodontists, your children should get an Orthodontic Check-up no later than age 7. (Source)
Treatment at an early age can be more minimally invasive which can save your child time if orthodontic treatment is needed later.
During the middle school years, or between the ages of 10-13 can be the best time to begin braces and orthodontic treatment. During this time, your child is still growing, which allows for easier tooth movement and jaw alignment.
The check-up may reveal that your child’s bite is fine. Or, the orthodontist may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring the child’s growth and development, and then if indicated, begin treatment at the appropriate time for the child. In other cases, the orthodontist might find a problem that can benefit from early treatment.
Dr. Schechtman can assess any potential obstacles to your child’s growth and development. Dr. Schechtman will evaluate your child’s smile, determine if they need braces and recommend the best time to start treatment, if necessary. The best part is that your Schechtman Smile Analysis is FREE! (a $250 value!)
