When Should My Child See an Orthodontist?

Initial Orthodontic Consultation

Along with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend your child have an orthodontic examination at 7 years of age.

At the initial exam, we will take facial and intraoral photos and x-rays if needed. One of our orthodontists will perform an exam and discuss your child’s eruption and development and explain if orthodontic treatment is necessary.
If treatment is recommended, we will walk you through the process of getting started! Our treatment coordinator will discuss all financial options and explain your orthodontic insurance benefit.
If no treatment is indicated at the time, your child will be placed into our observation program and will be seen every 6 months to monitor your child’s orthodontic needs as they develop into adolescence.
