The Best Age to See An Orthodontist

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child see an orthodontist by age 7, and perhaps earlier if a an orthodontic concern is identified. Around age 7, the first adult molars typically erupt, helping to define a patient’s back bite and allowing the orthodontist to more effectively evaluate the correctness of the developing bite. Treatment at this age may not be necessary, but orthodontic monitoring can help anticipate the ideal timeline for the most effective treatment and also help to prevent more serious problems in the future.

Some results of effective early treatment:

  • Reducing the need for permanent tooth removal
  • Creating space for crowded, erupting permanent teeth
  • Reducing the risk of injury to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving needed space for permanent teeth
  • Reducing future orthodontic treatment time

In addition to providing conventional metal and clear braces, Dr. Bhatia has the unique distinction of being the only Elite Invisalign® Provider in Maui County.
