Orthodontist for Children

At The Dental Specialist, under our pediatric dentistry department, we have specialists orthodontists who are specially trained to take care of orthodontic problems in children.

The AAO recommends that your child get a check-up with an Orthodontist at the first recognition of an orthodontic problem, but no later than age 7. By then, your child has enough permanent teeth for an orthodontist to determine whether an orthodontic problem exists or is developing. Putting off a check-up with an orthodontist until a child has lost all baby teeth could be a disservice. Some orthodontic problems may be easier to correct if they are found early. A check-up no later than age 7 gives your Orthodontist the opportunity to recommend the appropriate treatment at the appropriate time. If early treatment is in order,the orthodontist may be able to achieve results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.
