When is the right time to see an Orthodontist?

Age 7 is the right time to see an orthodontist according to the American Association of Orthodontists. 

While your child's teeth might appear to be straight, there may actually be a problem that needs to be evaluated by an orthodontist.

If you recognize any of the following issues with your child, schedule a check-up with an orthodontist. It may be one of the most important actions you can take to ensure your child's healthy smile. 

- Early or late loss of baby teeth
- Difficulty in chewing or biting
- Biting the cheek or the roof of the mouth
- Grinding or clenching of the teeth
- Thumb or finger sucking
- Speech difficulties
- Facial imbalance
- Jaws that shift or make sounds
