Quick check-ups every 6-12 months are completed by one of our orthodontists to evaluate that everything is growing normally and to identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed before all the grown-up teeth are in. Not all children require orthodontic treatment before they are teenagers, and some may never need it!
All children should see an orthodontist by the age of 7. Here at Impact Orthodontics the vast majority of our ‘under 10’ crowd are put into our completely FREE growth and development monitoring program because not all small children require orthodontics and some may never need treatment after we have watched them grow.
The great thing about this program is that you, the parents, will have many opportunities to speak to an orthodontic specialist about your child’s teeth, smile and bite before any treatment will commence. You will be well informed of the perfect timing for treatment, should it be required, and you will know all costs ahead of time so that you can plan insurance and/or HSA’s accordingly.
