    Is it too early to schedule an Orthodontic Consultation for my child?

    Lots of parents ask me whether their child is ready to be scheduled for an orthodontic consultation. As the American Association of Orthodontists recommends, I would recommend parents to schedule an orthodontic consultation for their child from age 7. This does not mean all the children will need to get braces at this time.

    You can visit your local orthodontic office and meet the staff and doctor. This will help your child be prepared and excited when they are ready for braces, since orthodontic offices provide fun environment. On top of that, your orthodontist will monitor eruption and growth of your children’s teeth, informing you when is the best timing for your child to get braces.

    However, if your child needs help with his/ her bone growth, your orthodontists can use this growth-window to achieve better result. When patients have cross-bite, underbite or open-bite, orthodontist can address the issues better when the bones are less solid.

    We, orthodontists, also start early treatment when we see that the child’s current bite may cause any irreversible damages on his/her oral health. When a child has bite that can damage the supporting tissues or are has an accident-prone bite we tend to start early treatment. There may also be other indicators that require early treatment.

    Again, even though your child are not ready to get braces, it is a great way to build rapport with your future orthodontist.

    Please call us to schedule a free consultation if you live in or proximal to Redmond, Woodinville, Duvall, Carnation.

    We are located at Redmond Ridge in QFC mall. We are just ten minutes away from Redmond, Duvall, Carnation and Woodinville Downtown.
