What is the best age for my child to see an orthodontist?
The American Association of Orthodontist Recommendation
The American Association of Orthodontist recommends that all children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. Dr. Nadine Egger can clearly see by age seven whether developmental issues can turn into problems. Early detection of common orthodontic problems such as crowding, premature loss of baby teeth, cross bites or many other unfavorable developmental issues can lead to the implementation of the most appropriate treatment that can result in a shorter course of therapy.
Frequently, early intervention will not be necessary, except for careful monitoring of your child’s dental development. This will give you peace of mind when it is not clear to you whether an issue you see is really a problem or just a stage of development that doesn’t require intervention.
