Children

Blueprint for long-term smile health

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children have an orthodontic evaluation by age seven. If any problems are detected, early treatment can prevent future issues.

Orthodontic problems can be inherited or caused by injury to the mouth, early or late loss of baby teeth, or thumb-sucking habits. We can treat these issues, which include crowding of the teeth, too much space between the teeth, jaw growth problems, protruding teeth, and bad bites.

Most children lose all their baby teeth by age 13, and by the end of their teen years, the jaw bones stop growing. Orthodontic procedures for adults often take more time and can involve tooth extraction or oral surgery. Receiving early orthodontic treatment as a child can reduce the need for more invasive procedures.

If your child is between the ages of seven and eight, please schedule an appointment. We’ll do an initial exam and discuss the best steps to take toward caring for your child's smile.
