What is the right age for my child to see an orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists suggests scheduling an evaluation as soon as we notice any potential orthodontic problems, but no later than age seven. This is the optimal time to begin planning your child’s orthodontic treatment. Treating your child at the appropriate point in their development will ensure beautiful results with the least amount of time and expense.

For some children, early screening may detect the need for immediate treatment, since some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if found early. In other cases, treatment may be months or years away, but a screening will help you develop a relationship with our office. Alternatively, an early screening may suggest that no treatment is needed, putting your mind at ease.

Even if your child’s teeth look straight, there may be potential problems that need to be evaluated by an orthodontist. Here are a few things to look for:

  • Early loss of baby teeth
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty in biting or chewing
  • Teeth grinding or clenching
  • Thumb or finger sucking

If any of these issues are a concern, please call Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to schedule an evaluation appointment. It may be one of the best things you can do for your child to ensure a happy and healthy smile.
