The Benefits of an Orthodontic Evaluation by Age Seven

Updated: Dec 21, 2020

Seeking an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven may help mitigate many orthodontic problems in the future.

The orthodontist will get baseline images of your child’s jaw and teeth alignment and be able to determine the most beneficial time to begin treatment or early intervention. 

The earlier orthodontic issues are detected, the easier they are to correct. One of the many goals of an orthodontist is to be able to retain all of your child’s permanent teeth.

Obtaining a baseline evaluation may prevent your child from having permanent teeth pulled, which is a lifetime benefit. Seven means planning ahead to a healthy, straight smile.
