It’s never too early to visit an orthodontist. Most children should be seen when their upper and lower front teeth are erupting around the age of seven. Most children are not actually ready for any orthodontic treatment at this age. However, at the initial exam we can give you an idea what to expect in the future. Even if it is several years before treatment is needed, coming in early and following up with periodic recall visits allows us to monitor growth, dental development, and the child’s personality. There is no charge for recall visits. When a patient who is on recall is ready to start orthodontic treatment, a diagnostic records appointment will be scheduled.

It is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs in order to determine an appropriate treatment plan to get the best possible results.
