When should my child see an orthodontist?
There is no set age at which kids should start seeing an orthodontist, however, the American Association of Orthodontics recommends that a child is screened by an orthodontist by age 7. Often early orthodontic intervention can help guide proper jaw development and allow proper room for normal eruption of the permanent teeth. Children tend to have better treatment outcomes when a problem is identified and corrected early on.
