For Children

The American Association of Orthodontists recommend children see an orthodontist no later than age 7 in order to screen for potential skeletal problems which can only be corrected at a young age. By age 7, the first permanent molars and incisors have usually come in by that time and crossbites, crowding, and other problems can be evaluated. When treatment is begun early, the orthodontist can guide the growth of the jaw and guide incoming permanent teeth.

At your complimentary consultation, Dr. Buchler will thoroughly evaluate facial balance and any orthodontic needs your child may have, She will then determine if orthodontic treatment is indicated and when the best time to begin treatment would be.
