Making A Big Difference In Little Smiles!
Kids: The Right Time For Orthodontics
Howdy! Your mind is probably overrun with questions: At what age should I take my child to the orthodontist? Does my little one really need braces right now? Is this the right time or should we wait? As the mother of two girls under the age of 10, Dr. Mehta understands and appreciates a parent’s concerns and is here to answer all your questions. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the first Orthodontic exam around age 7. Dr. Mehta believes in the uniqueness of every child and definitely does not believe in “one size fits all”. She will work with YOU personalize treatment that fits YOUR child. Dr. Mehta treats each child as her own and will NEVER recommend UNNECESSARY treatment.
Most of the time, no early treatment is necessary and all we would recommend is a follow up visit to check growth of the jaws and teeth, however the only way to determine that, is during a complete orthodontic consultation; come on in for a COMPLIMENTARY check up! You’ll find that our little office is actually a pretty fun place for the kids.
