King Orthodontics - Rochester, MN
"For some patients, early treatment can make the difference!" There is usually a best age to begin treatment to achieve maximum improvement with minimum time and expense. It is recommended that a child's first visit to an orthodontist take place by age seven. By this time, enough permanent teeth have come in and jaw growth has occurred to identify current and future problems. Although treatment may not actually be started until years later, early examination allows proper evaluation and planning for the best treatment program. In some instances, early (ages 7-9) orthodontic intervention can be extremely beneficial. An effective and brief early orthodontic treatment often can eliminate the need for future braces, or may greatly reduce their complexity and cost. "And you are never too old for a beautiful smile.
