Watch Now: 3 1/2 reasons to see an Orthodontist

Probably the most common question I am asked as an Orthodontist is, “when should my child see an orthodontist? Aren’t they a little young for braces?”

In my opinion, every child should see a Specialist Orthodontist before the age of nine years. By this age, an Orthodontist can reliably predict if a child will develop orthodontic problems. We can often take simple measures to reduce or even avoid major orthodontic problems being carried over into the adult teeth.

Every child is different. Therefore, it is best to listen to the advice of a professional.
