For Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic check-up no later than age 7. As most children have a mix of adult and baby teeth at this time, Dr. Eisen can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth.

Early orthodontic treatment can also regulate the width of the upper and lower dental arches, gain space for permanent teeth, reduce the need for permanent tooth extractions, decrease the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth, correct thumb-sucking, and eliminate abnormal swallowing or speech problems.

Ultimately, early orthodontic treatment may prevent more serious problems from developing, or make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
