Orthodontics for Children in Jefferson Valley & Purchase, NY

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.

How to know if your child needs a Westchester Orthodontist

  • Mouth breathing
  • Finger or thumb sucking
  • Crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth
  • Jaws that pop or make sounds when opening and closing
  • Teeth that come together abnormally, or do not come together at all
  • Jaws and teeth that are irregular in comparison to rest of the face.

Benefits of an Orthodontic Check-up for your children in Westchester

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.

  • It can save your money.
  • It can prevent painful surgical treatment.
  • Early treatment can prevent future problems like permanent tooth extractions.
  • Some treatments are not possible after the growth of face and jaws is finished.
  • While kids are baby teeth, it is easier for you and for your orthodontists to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

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!)
