Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

American Association of Orthodontics logoThe American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents understand the early warning signs of an orthodontic problem and recommend kids be evaluated by an orthodontist by age 7 – 8. Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and a greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Well-timed intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.
