7&Up-Orthodontic Checkup

The American Association recommends that children get their first orthodontic check up no later than age 7.


The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. At I-Ortho, we provide a free early evaluation, to give your child the best opportunity for a healthy and beautiful smile

Detecting orthodontic problems at this age does not always mean that orthodontic treatment should be started. Dr. Pfeffer will evaluate your child to discuss whether early intervention would be beneficial at this time. Dr. Pfeffer always takes a very conservative approach with younger children, and will only initiate treatment if there is a true benefit.
