When should children be seen by an Orthodontist?

When should children be seen by an Orthodontist?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that a child’s first visit to an orthodontist should be no later than 7 yrs of age if an orthodontic problem is detected.

This enables an early examination to detect and evaluate problems and plan appropriate treatment at the optimal time.
