When Should Your Child Be Evaluated for Braces?

Dr. Emily Hahn, Pediatric Dentist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, discusses orthodontic care for children and advises on when your child should be evaluated for braces. The American Academy of Orthodontists recommends having your child’s first consultation around age seven. While having your child evaluated for braces at this age may seem young, early evaluation allows for discovering any problems sooner, leading to better results. Your child’s pediatric dentist is the best place to start to have their dental needs assessed and ask if your child would benefit from orthodontic care.
