The answer may surprise you! While you are focused on the tooth fairy’s visit, orthodontists are ready to review your child’s jaw and teeth health. It is recommended that by age 7, your child should have an orthodontic evaluation. At Feil Orthodontics, we always offer an initial evaluation and consultation free of charge. We also offer ongoing “growth guidance” monitoring at no cost to you in order to ensure that your child starts active orthodontic treatment at the most appropriate time.
At this age, an evaluation is reviewing subtle problems including inadequate space, tooth crowding, crossbites, underbites, open bites, bite malalignment, impacted teeth, jaw joint function or any oral damage. Early detection and treatment prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated.
At Feil Orthodontics, we want you to feel like family. It’s our goal to partner with you to provide your child the best orthodontic journey possible to ensure the best opportunity for a healthy, beautiful smile your child feels excited to share.
