When should my child see an Orthodontist?
Orthodontics Australia recommend children between the ages of 7-10 years visit a specialist orthodontist for an assessment, no referral from a dentist is needed.
The Benefits of Early Treatment
If your child is flaunting a gap-toothed smile in their school pictures and waking in the morning to find the tooth fairy has paid them a visit (and paid them some cold hard cash), then the fact that they’re quickly growing up is probably front of mind. And it should be. In fact, how their teeth and jaw is growing should be something you think about early. And that’s where the Truth Fairy comes in.
Checkup before they grow up
Is your child aged 8 to 10? It’s time to book a visit to the Truth Fairy (aka Your ONiA Orthodontist), so they can assess your child’s mouth and see what treatment they may (or may not) need in the future. Remember, only a specialist orthodontist can tell you the *truth* about your child’s growing teeth and jaws. One checkup before age 10 can make all the difference.
