You may be wondering when is the best time to take your child for their first orthodontic check-up, and why it’s so important. By being proactive in knowing the right time, you could be saving your child from a more intense treatment down the road, and yourself a lot of money. At Braces Plus, we want all our patients to not only have a beautiful smile, but a healthy one too! We are here to give you the scoop on when you should bring your child in, and the benefits of early orthodontic treatment!
Best Time To Start?
The Canadian Association of Orthodontics suggests that most children will need their first orthodontic check-up around age seven. This is when they will start to develop permanent teeth, and any early signs of future problems will start to develop. Although an assessment by a dentist is important, Dr. Eimar will take special interest in your child’s jaw, bite, and alignment of their teeth! When you start treatment early on, you’re ensuring your child’s future smile will shine bright, and overall be healthy.
Act Now, Save Later
When a child comes in at an early age, Dr. Eimar can give recommendations to help their teeth erupt into their proper place. Although your child will be assessed and examined now, it does not mean an orthodontic treatment needs to take place right away. By getting a better idea of your child’s bite, we can create a custom plan to help mitigate future problems. Overbite, and crowding/crooked teeth can both be helped with early intervention!
