Children's First Orthodontic Check-up No Later Than Age 7
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that your child get an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. Our Board Certified Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.
Please contact us to schedule an appointment for your child’s free check-up. Here are some indications that your child might need early orthodontic treatment.
Early loss of baby teeth
Crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth
Upper and lower teeth meet in an abnormal way
Early orthodontic treatment, if indicated, can help minimize the need for more extensive treatment at a later date. In some cases, we will be able to achieve results that wouldn’t be possible once the face and jaws have finished growing.

Overjet There is excessive protrusion of the upper front teeth – "buck teeth".
Underbite The upper teeth fit inside the arch of the lower teeth or protruding lower teeth.
Deep Bite The upper front teeth cover the lower front teeth excessively.
Open Bite There is a gap betwen the upper and lower front teeth when bite down.
Midline Shift The center of the upper front teeth and lower front teeth do not line up properly.
