Does Your Child Need Braces?

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all children see an orthodontist for an initial evaluation by the age of seven. At this age, permanent teeth are starting to replace baby teeth and it’s easier for our orthodontist to correct jaw growth problems. This does NOT mean that all seven year olds need braces. However, by getting regular dental growth check-ups, Dr. Parker will be able to determine the best time to begin orthodontic treatment, if it is necessary, to ensure the best results.
