Early orthodontic treatment isn’t something that comes to mind for a lot of parents. After all, why would a young child require orthodontic care?
You might be surprised. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents schedule an appointment for their children by age 7 or after the molars have erupted. If no early treatment arises from that first appointment, Dr. Jones will ask to see your child in a year to observe their growth and development.
