Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you will be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile!
When does my child need to see an orthodontist?
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that a child should get an orthodontic check-up at age 7. While most kids do not need treatment at this early age, some will benefit from early treatment (or Phase I treatment) to prevent more serious problems from developing at a later age. Through an early orthodontic evaluation, you will be giving your child the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile.
Here are some reasons for Early Treatment:
- Unfavorable jaw growth
- Severe overbite
- Protruding (flared) upper front teeth – increased risk of trauma
- Severe crowding of front or back teeth
- Early loss or delayed loss of baby teeth causing problems with adult teeth coming in
- Oral habits – thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, or mouth breathing
- Crossbite of back teeth – may cause the lower jaw to shift and grow unfavorably
- Difficulty chewing or biting
- An embarrassing appearance
If your child is experiencing these conditions, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Peter to evaluate if your child will benefit from early interceptive treatment.
It is easier to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence because jaw growth is happening rapidly at this time.

Having a healthy, straight smile provides many rewards at a later stage in life:
- Improvements to personal appearance and self-esteem
- Better oral health while decreasing the chances of gum disease and bone loss (periodontitis), tooth decay, and abnormal wear of tooth enamel and surfaces
- May provide relief to headaches and jaw joint pain (TMJ/TMD)
