It is important to have kids evaluated by the orthodontist to catch problems before they develop. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends every child be evaluated by age 7.
Beginning treatment too late may make correcting certain problems more difficult. Starting treatment too early reduces efficiency, can lead to burn out, and is not cost effective.
If your child is not ready for treatment, Dr. Jones will let you know and we will schedule complementary periodic check ups to monitor their growth and development. As a parent, it is nice to have that piece of mind!
