Your dentist should monitor your child’s development during the transition from the baby dentition to the adult dentition. An orthodontist may need to see your child between the ages of 6-10 years, especially if a key dental developmental stage is delayed or your dentist has concerns.
The majority of orthodontic treatment in children is best undertaken when growth is actively occurring during adolescence. For girls between the ages of 10-13, boys 11-15 years. During this period we can use your child’s growth potential to obtain a great smile which enhances facial appearance and jaw function.
