The American and Canadian Associations of Orthodontists recommend that your child’s first consultation be at the age of 7. That’s when the first permanent molars tend to come in and the back bite is taking shape. This is also the time when the adult front teeth begin to appear. This first consultation allows the orthodontist to detect any significant problems with the bite, how much space is in the mouth, and whether there’s been a functional shift or a certain asymmetry. At this point, the orthodontist may recommend regular monitoring to ensure normal growth. If a problem is detected, an early treatment may be recommended to improve or correct the situation, while additional concerns might need to be addressed later.
