RIGHT AGE FOR TREATMENT
Our practice provides orthodontic treatment for adults, adolescents and
children. We follow the guidelines set forth by The Canadian Association of
Orthodontists by recommending that an orthodontic evaluation take place at the
age of seven for all children. The timing of orthodontic treatment is extremely
important and greatly affects the treatment results.
An early evaluation, by an orthodontist, can help determine the best time
to begin any necessary treatment. Early diagnosis can help guide facial and
skeletal growth and tooth eruption to prevent more serious problems from
developing. Our goal is to reduce treatment time in full braces and to
provide the best and most stable results.
