As your child grows and develops, he or she should see a doctor who specializes in orthodontics for children. Orthodontic Associates can help your child grow up with a set of straight, healthy teeth.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that a child should start seeing an orthodontist at the age of seven, because your child’s teeth and skeletal structure are continually changing and can require treatments to correct. We make it easy to bring your child in for regular growth and development visits. We do not even charge for these visits unless treatment is required.
Throughout growth and development visits we can also help identify bad oral habits, like thumb-sucking, dependence to pacifiers past age one and tongue thrust habits. These habits past a very young age can become damaging to your child’s teeth and oral bite.
Once your child is old enough, we may recommend Invisalign treatment or modern braces to align his bite and straighten his teeth for a healthier, more beautiful smile.
