When should you start considering braces?
You may have heard before that you should only seek for orthodontic treatment when all your adult teeth are out. However, the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) states that children should see an orthodontist no later than the age of 7. We agree with the recommendation.
There are benefits to take your child to a dentist at a young age. At the age of 7, their first adult molars would have started to emerge, this allows the dentist to evaluate the type of bite the child has. Early potential orthodontic or airway problems can also be identified and addressed early if necessary.
