Early Orthodontic Treatment
It is recommended that a child is seen by a dentist no later than age 7.
In some cases, children should be seen as early as age 2 or 3. Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected early rather than waiting until jaw growth has slowed.
Early orthodontic treatment is designed to minimize or eliminate the need for more invasive treatment or serious corrections later in life.
As your child is still growing and developing, their skeletal structure is still malleable making it possible to modify their jaw development and promote proper growth, which may help avoid the need for more invasive treatment or even surgery later in your child's development.
