When should my child visit a Specialist Orthodontist?
In the UK, it is recommended for children to visit a Specialist Orthodontist around the age of seven. At this age, their adult teeth have started to grow in, and their jaw is still growing - which makes it the best time to assess their bite.
We can see if your child’s bite is aligned correctly, and make sure they have enough space for their current and incoming teeth. If we think they would benefit from orthodontic intervention, we can minimise their treatment time as teens through early treatment with a functional appliance.
