Just because they still have some of those adorable little “baby” teeth, doesn’t mean your kid’s too young for the orthodontist. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends scheduling their first visit at age seven. It might sound young but this is the perfect time to have a child evaluated in case early intervention is necessary. It can save tons of hassle as a teen or an adult.
Most children won’t need braces right away, and it’s often just an observational period. Dr. Khanna, a kids Orthodontist in Brooklyn, will simply monitor your little one’s dental and facial development and let you know when it’s time for treatment. He’ll make sure everything is progressing normally. A little peace of mind never hurts.
