What is the best age for my child to see an Orthodontist? As a parent, you want your child to grow up with a healthy set of teeth and gums that allow them to feel confident about their appearance. While people often associate orthodontic treatment with teens, you need to know that your child needs to see the orthodontist long before they hit their teenage years. Many of the issues that affect teeth and bite alignment begin early in childhood, and early detection of problems such as crowding allow you to prevent orthodontic issues from getting worse.
