When Should My Child See the Orthodontist?

Ultimately, you should bring your children in for an orthodontic evaluation anytime you think there might be something wrong with their teeth or smile. Generally speaking, however, we ask parents to bring children in for an initial consultation at the age of 7, as recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists. This may seem early, but evaluating at this age allows us to spot both current problems and any potential future problems with growth and tooth eruption that may develop, giving us the freedom to either start with early treatment right away or monitor your child's development for the ideal time to begin treatment.

Who Can Get Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontic treatment can help anyone with an orthodontic malocclusion, whether it's a mild case of crooked teeth or a severe jaw alignment problem. Dr. Olson and our treatment team have years of experience designing comprehensive treatment plans that help our patients achieve a new smile as quickly and conveniently as possible, so no matter what orthodontic condition you face, we'll find the right treatment.

That said, there is no set time frame for orthodontic treatment. While many of our patients are teenagers, we can move healthy teeth at any age, which means there's no such thing as being "too old" for braces. In fact, more than one third of our patients are adults, and most are shocked at the dramatic, lasting benefits of a new smile. So whether you are 8 or 80 years old (yes, our oldest patient treated is 81!), we can help you have a beautiful, healthy smile. Achieving a beautiful new smile injects a boost of happiness, confidence, and self-esteem into your life at any age, and if you're interested in exploring adult orthodontic treatment, we'd be thrilled to help!
