Orthodontic Treatment for Children in Houston, Texas
Did you know that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends bringing your child to the orthodontist starting at age 7? In most cases, this will simply be a “check.” In a small percentage of children, however, some treatment may be recommended in order to detect and prevent problems down the road. Some reasons for early (so-called “Phase I”) treatment can include early loss of one or more baby teeth, a narrow upper jaw, impacted teeth, or an underbite.
