Best Age For Child Treatment
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that age seven is a good time for the first visit to an Orthodontic Specialist, or earlier if a problem is noticed by either the parents or the family dentist.
Most orthodontic problems are inherited, and therefore cannot be prevented. However, early diagnosis and treatment by Drs. Pulitzer can frequently guide facial development and tooth eruption, and thereby prevent more serious problems from occurring.
Treating children during their growth stages allows Drs. Pulitzer to achieve results that may not be possible once facial bones have fully developed. This early treatment can simplify or eliminate additional treatment for the child.
