Early orthodontic treatment may be necessary to prevent more serious problems in the future. Dr. Brandon Scheer recommends following the American Association of Orthodontists®’ recommendation to have a child’s first orthodontic evaluation between 7 and 8 years old. An orthodontic evaluation at this age will ensure that your child’s growth and development are on track, and it can help us determine if and when any treatment is needed.
