When should my child first see an Orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child visit an orthodontist by age 7, or earlier if a problem is detected by parents, family dentist or the child's physician. Although only a few of the patients need treatment at this time, the orthodontist can often improve improper growth and prevent future problems. For some of these problems early intervention is essential for a good result. Should your child not be ready for treatment the orthodontist will monitor growth and development on a regular basis.
