Your child's first orthodontic visit
If you're wondering how soon you should take your child to an orthodontic evaluation, the Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends between the ages of 7 and 9. In most cases, Dr Foo doesn't recommend treatment until a child has all of his or her adult teeth (around age 12). However, he believes early treatment can benefit children on certain occasions.
Even younger children who aren't ready for treatment should also receive annual appointments to check their dental growth and ensure they can begin treatment at the opportune time.
