When Should I Start Preparing For Orthodontic Treatment?

Family Discount

At Dr. C Orthodontics, we love making the whole family smile with confidence. One of the ways we do this is through our Family Discount - the more members of your family that receive treatment, the bigger the discount!

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children see an orthodontist by the age of 7 — the age when it's most critical to ensure the teeth are properly growing in. At a young age, minor orthodontic procedures like baby teeth removal, the use of limited braces to close gaps in the teeth, or using an oral appliance to correct a crossbite or treat sleep apnea can be beneficial.

Usually, a child's permanent teeth have grown in by the ages of 11, 12, or 13.
