February is national Children’s Dental Health month and we want all of our friends and family to love their smiles and have healthy teeth! The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist by the age of 7 years for an overall evaluation. Come in and see us for a complimentary consultation today. It’s never too early or too late to get started.
While your child’s teeth might appear to be straight, there may actually be a problem that needs to be evaluated by an orthodontist. If you recognize any of the following issues with your child, please schedule a check-up with your local orthodontist. It may be one of the most important actions you can take to ensure your child’s healthy and happy smile.
• Early or late loss of baby teeth
• Difficulty in chewing or biting
• Mouth breathing
• Jaws that shift or make sounds
• Speech difficulties
Orthodontists are specialists in straightening teeth and aligning your bite. They have two to three years of education beyond dental school. So they’re experts at helping you and your child, get a great smile—that feels great, too.
