When Should My Child Have An Orthodontic Evaluation?

Child-Friendly Burlingame Dentist

It’s a question that many moms and dads in Burlingame debate: When should I take my child in for their first orthodontic evaluation? The answer may be a little earlier than you think.

We recommend bringing children in by the age of seven. Even if you don’t see any signs that your child will need braces. It’s crucial to have an exam and X-rays to know exactly how tooth development is progressing.

How about dental visits for general dental care? We recommend bringing your toddler to a family or pediatric dentist by the age of one.

Not only will your dentist want to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, but it’s also vital for children to get used to seeing the dentist.

Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your son or daughter will be less likely to require extensive restorative dental work.
