Orthodontics for Great Smiles Braces for Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that most children have their first orthodontic appointment around the time they are seven-years-old. As not all permanent teeth may have grown in by then, treatment is not started until children are between nine and 16-years-old. However, jaw growth and tooth eruption problems can be more easily identified as early as that first appointment and can be more appropriately treated.

In children, orthodontists are looking for:

  • Mild problems - these are only watched on a semi-annual or annual basis and are treated later
  • More severe problems - treating them early can prevent extensive treatment later
  • Proper growth of the jaw and teeth - sometimes, the teeth and jaw require nothing more than gentle guidance
