February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. If you have a child around the age of 7, it’s a good time to make an appointment with us. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.
This doesn’t mean that treatment is necessary or will even begin at this age. The idea is to identify potential issues and be able to monitor them. Early analysis may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated, or avoid it altogether.
