Orthodontics for Kids
The recommended age for a first check up with an orthodontist is 7 years old. By that age, most kids will have grown enough adult teeth for an orthodontist to diagnose any early signs of crowding or other potential dental issues. Your orthodontist will then discuss with you whether these issues should be treated early or later on, depending on the unique needs and situation of each patient.
At Maple Orthodontics, we know our younger patients may have very little experience with orthodontia, and so our friendly orthodontist and caring staff strive to set kids at ease with our iPad entertainment systems and multi-coloured braces and elastic options.
We want kids to be proud of their smiles, even during the straightening process.
