The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child should visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age, but at least no later than the first birthday. This visit will establish a thorough prevention program for your child. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future.
Children should see an orthodontist for an initial orthodontic assessment no later than the age of 7. This examination allows the orthodontist to determine the optimum time to commence treatment. In some growing children, orthodontic problems can benefit from early intervention. In other children, where no immediate therapy is indicated, the orthodontist may want to monitor skeletal growth and dental development.
