What is the right age for an orthodontic check-up?
Posted on 06/14/2018

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends orthodontic check-ups beginning at age 7. While it is the norm that people think pre-teen/teen when talking orthodontics, there are some issues that are more easily corrected with a limited amount of orthodontics at an early age while the face and jaw are in an extended growth period. Once your child has been to see Dr. Engstrom for an initial evaluation if he/she is not in need of treatment Dr. Engstrom will see them periodically, once or twice a year, to monitor growth and eruption of permanent teeth. At Engstrom Orthodontics there is no charge for an orthodontic consultation or any subsequent recall visits. Call our Fuquay Varina or Raleigh office today at 919.870.4443 to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Engstrom.
