Early Treatment: Preventing Future Complications


What Is Early Treatment? Throughout your child’s life, there will be a wide variety of firsts: first haircut, first car, first day of school. One first you should never miss is your child’s first visit to the orthodontist. Early treatment is the key. The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends all children receive an orthodontic screening by age seven.
