Timing is Everything
Baby teeth set the foundation for permanent teeth, so it’s important for you to bring your child to Merna Tajaddod Orthodontics before age 7 or when you are concerned about your child’s teeth or bite. By the age of 7, your child will have enough permanent teeth for Dr. Tajaddod to evaluate essential criteria like how their jaws work together and whether their teeth are properly aligned. Timing is everything — especially when it comes to your child’s orthodontic treatment.
“Early” treatment, also called “interceptive” treatment, means treatment that is performed while some baby teeth are still present. This early treatment is designed to prevent complex dental and skeletal concerns that may be more difficult to resolve later in life.
