When to Consider Orthodontic Assessments for Kids

Early Intervention: The Key to Successful Orthodontic Treatment

The optimal age for a child’s first orthodontic assessment typically falls around seven years old. At this stage, orthodontists can identify potential issues and plan for timely interventions.

After an evaluation, it’s time to determine which type of orthodontic option will be best for your child. Traditional braces remain a steadfast choice, but innovative solutions such as clear aligners, like Invisalign, are gaining popularity for their discreet and comfortable nature.

During the evaluation, we’ll determine how severe your child’s misalignment is. If there is an issue with bite and severely misaligned teeth, traditional braces may be the better option. Suitable candidates for Invisalign clear aligners typically have milder misalignment without severe jaw issues.
