At what age should I bring my child in for a consultation?

Catégorie : Home

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial consultation at the age of 7. It is always preferable to schedule a consultation sooner than later, as it can mean the difference between an effective treatment and a long, complicated and expensive treatment. In addition, orthodontic problems requiring early treatment are not always easy to notice. Parents should therefore not rely on their own or other’s assessment to determine whether an orthodontic consultation is necessary.

It is important to note that even if a child receives a consultation at a fairly young age, this does not necessarily mean that an initial phase of early treatment will be undertaken. In fact, in many cases, only periodic follow-ups and simple preventive procedures will be necessary until the child is 12-14 years old. At this time, effective general orthodontic treatment can be begun. Through prevention, no treatment may be necessary in some cases.
