What is the best time to start orthodontic treatment?

This all depends on the specific dental problem and the way the teeth and jaws are developing, we are all unique, even siblings. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child first visit an orthodontist at age 7. The reason for this early examination is to allow the specialist to determine when is the ideal time (if any) for the child to be treated for optimal improvement. Early treatment can give the orthodontist the chance to: – Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth. – Guide the facial and dental growth. – Correct harmful oral habits. – Improve appearance and self-esteem. – Improve some speech problems. Early orthodontic screening can lead to simpler, more effective treatment for greater peace of mind.
