Treatment for Patients of All Ages

 Age 7 Consults

By age 7, your child's permanent teeth and jaw are forming.  This age is optimal for an orthodontic consult to detect any jaw disharmony, permanent teeth crowding, or space issues.


Some children do not require treatment at this time. Waiting does not help and not all children should be treated during adolescence; that is a common misconception concerning braces.
