When will my child get braces?

Posted On: December 8, 2016

There are many reasons that kids need braces. Seeing an orthodontist is usually recommended around age 7; which is about the time when permanent teeth start to come in.  Your child’s dentist will probably be the first to suggest that you see an orthodontist.  This does not always mean your child will start treatment right away, but it’s a good way for an orthodontist to assess if any problems exist.  They can also help to predict any future issues while the child continues to grow.  They will want to monitor yearly until full treatment is needed.  -Andi
