By the age of seven most kids have their adult molars in and have established their bite. This makes it the optimal time to bring your child in for an evaluation. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children be evaluated no later than age seven.
Thank goodness most of the time they don’t need any treatment at this age, but in case they do, early treatment can sometimes solve future orthodontic problems by
- Creating room for adult teeth coming in
- Influencing jaw growth to create optimal facial symmetry
- Reducing the need for future tooth extractions
- Reducing future treatment time
- Avoiding future surgery
