Early Orthodontics: The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check up with an orthodontist at the age of 7. This is the average age that adult teeth start erupting.
We evaluate not only the teeth, but the growth and development of the jaws, oral habits, and functioning of the bite. Early orthodontics is more about the jaws than the teeth and we attempt to avoid using brackets at this early stage unless absolutely necessary.
We focus on making sure oral hygiene is optimal as this is sometimes difficult at an early age.
