The Responsibilities of Your Child’s Orthodontist

An orthodontist is a dentist who has advanced training in how to make teeth move properly and how to turn a crooked smile into one that is straight, beautiful, and healthy. Our orthodontic staff also specializes in several other areas of dental health as well, including issues that affect the jaw as well as the bite, and we are also experienced in performing oral health examinations on a regular basis.

When It’s Time to See an Orthodontist

Many people associate orthodontists as specialists who only straighten teeth, but another critically important component of what they do includes making sure all the permanent teeth are developing and erupting properly and that a patient’s bite aligns properly after treatment has concluded. If your child has crowded or crooked teeth, that can be much more than a cosmetic problem. It can also lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and possibly even the loss of teeth because of improperly erupting teeth and if teeth overlap, they can be very difficult to keep clean.

It is typically recommended that parents take their children to an orthodontist by the age of seven, whether or not the child is showing any signs of problems.
