When children are young, their jaws are growing and their dentitions are changing. It is possible to redirect the growth and eliminate future problems at this stage. Children should have their first orthodontic screening no later than age 7. This will be to evaluate the growing jaws and dentition and to do early treatment if there is the need. Early interceptive treatment can be a wise investment for the future by decreasing the possibility or complexity of future orthodontic treatments.

If you need need a dentist then I would come straight to Elif because she has the best orthodontic knowledge that I have seen so far. If you need braces, don't think twice."
