What is the ideal age to bring my child in for an orthodontic consultation?
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the earliest you bring your child in for their first consultation is age 7. This will allow our orthodontist and team to evaluate the child’s craniofacial and dental growth and development during their pre-adolescent growth spurt. Even if treatment is not recommended, the Doctor will have a solid baseline as to when the right timing treatment should start. However, there is never improper timing, even for both teenagers and adults, to gather information of what treatment options are available. Our consultations are always complimentary and our team is excited to work with you!
What types of orthodontic treatments are available?
This depends on the age, treatment goals, and needs of each individual patient regardless of age. We offer what we believe is the highest quality orthodontic system on the market, the Damon System manufactured by Ormco, and will offer the most efficient and best result with least amount of discomfort. We also offer Invisalign for the right candidate. Please contact us with any of your concerns or questions and we’d be happy to answer them.
