April 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #61: Early Intervention in Orthodontic Treatment

Tip of the Week

The tooth fairy hasn't even visited your kid yet but your family dentist is already advising you to see an orthodontist about getting dental braces. What gives?

Actually, according to the American Association of Orthodontists, you should have your kid visit an orthodontist for the first time around age 7, just around when their incisors the first teeth to be replaced by adult teeth start to fall out. Seeing an orthodontist this early is called early intervention, and can require less time and expense than waiting even a few more years.

So as soon as your child's baby teeth start wiggling, make sure you have them seen by an orthodontist to save yourself money and your child an extended treatment time.
