When is the right time to see an orthodontist?
Probably the most common question I am asked as an Orthodontist is, “When should my child visit the orthodontist? Aren’t they a little young for braces?”
In my opinion, every child should see a Specialist Orthodontist before the age of nine years. By this age, an Orthodontist can reliably predict if a child will develop orthodontic problems. We can often take simple measures to reduce or even avoid the person carrying over major orthodontic problems into their adult teeth.
Every child is different. Therefore, it is best to listen to the advice of a professional.
