  • Q: What is the best age to schedule my child’s first orthodontic evaluation?

    A: According to the American Association of Orthodontists, you should schedule your child’s first orthodontic evaluation around age seven. At this time, the six-year molars, laterals, and central incisors are in place, and your child’s jaw growth pattern will be more obvious. Early detection helps with the diagnosis and prevention of many potential problems. In many cases, the doctor may not recommend early treatment, but Dr. Azar will monitor your child’s growth and development so that we can recommend the best, most efficient treatment for your child’s individual needs.
