Why Children Should Get an Orthodontic Check-up No Later Than Age 7:

While some baby teeth are still present, orthodontists are able to spot even the most subtle problems with jaw growth and issues with emerging baby teeth. There is a potential for problems in children even though their teeth may appear to be straight and healthy. Experienced orthodontists are able to spot these problems and ensure they are fixed before they turn into serious hazards.
