Best Time for the First Braces Consultation Marietta, GA
A schoolgirl with her mother and grandmother.

Never had an orthodontic evaluation before? Maybe you’re doing some research on behalf of your kids because you want to know when they should see an orthodontist in Marietta.

Braces are highly beneficial for teeth since straightening them out can:

  • Reduce staining
  • Lower risk for gum disease and cavities
  • Improve your bite
  • Boost self confidence

All great reasons for getting orthodontic treatment. But when do you get started?

The Sooner The Better!

When it comes to kids, it’s best to get them into an orthodontist’s chair as early as possible. You don’t have to wait until your child becomes a teenager with crooked teeth to seek a professional opinion!

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that kids have their first evaluation by the age of 7.

At that critical point, your child will have just enough of their adult teeth in position for a specialist to detect major problems. But it’s still early enough that if treatment is necessary, you can prevent or correct problems more simply than later in adolescence.

Orthodontic Consult For Adults

As far as your own teeth go, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s never too late to start straightening them out. Adults of all ages have successfully completed ortho treatment and gotten results they love.

If adjusting tooth alignment is just one part of your smile’s treatment, then timing does matter. For example, you’ll want to get your teeth all straightened before filling in a gap with a dental implant or bridge.

To find out the ideal time for you and your family to get orthodontic evaluations, visit East Cobb Orthodontics.
