Orthodontics are an excellent way to straighten your teeth! While they are used to straighten teeth for an enhanced smile, they also help restore functionality to teeth, as well as your jaw and bite.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children should have an evaluation with an orthodontist by the age of 7 regardless of how many teeth have erupted.
This is because orthodontists are able to predict if any structural changes will occur to the mouth that may impede on a child’s bite and cause serious problems in the long term.
