We recommend a first orthodontic consultation at the age of 7 years. This is because the back molars and front incisors have now erupted, setting up your child’s future bite. Most children do not need treatment this young, but your specialist orthodontist will assess their jaw growth and tooth eruption to advise you of what to expect in the future.
If your child is older than 7, don’t worry that you have missed the boat! We see children of all ages and have the experience and skills to resolve orthodontic issues at any time.
