Dr Crotty recommends that optimally a child receives their first orthodontic screening by the age of 8. Early treatment has proven to be very beneficial in some cases. Because a young child’s permanent teeth have not finished erupting, we are able to anticipate any impending problems at the earliest stages. Early intervention may also reduce overall treatment time in braces.
