American Association of Orthodontists: Recommends Orthodontic Check-Ups no later than Age 7

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children have a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.

The AAO does not advocate comprehensive orthodontic treatment at age 7.  However, interceptive treatment may be appropriate in the kinds of problems shown on the photo.  Final treatment decision should be made among the parent, child's dentist and orthodontist.

Please contact our office to schedule your Complimentary Consultation today at (703) 729-7210.

Retainers... Yes They are Important!

Remember, after your complete treatment you will need to wear your Retainer or your teeth WILL shift!  During your Retention Phase it is important to always bring your Retainer with you to your appointments!  If you lose or break your Retainer let our office know as soon as possible!
