Is my child too young for braces?

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that Orthodontics see a patient at age seven. This is typically the age of if there is a concern then we would want to see that patient, see your child. We will look and talk about if treatment is necessary now or is it something that we can monitor at this time and we see this patient back in a year next year and wait till more teeth come in and then determine proper treatment, but age seven is a great time to just look not necessarily recommend treatment at that time but is a good time to access their needs.
