It is true that orthodontics can enhance smiles at any age, however there is a "best time" period to begin treatment. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that a child receive an initial orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7.

Early intervention guides growth and development preventing serious problems later, and ensures the greatest result in the least amount of time and expense.

Advantages of Early Treatment

  • Create more space for crowded teeth
  • Correct and guide the growth of your child's jaws
  • Reduce the need to remove permanent teeth
  • Correct thumb-sucking habits and help improve minor speech problems
  • Reduce treatment time with braces
  • Improve self-esteem and promotes positive emotional growth and development
