When should a child see an orthodontist?

It is recommended that a child see an orthodontist by the age of 7. By this age, the child's permanent teeth have started coming in, and any potential orthodontic issues can be identified. Early intervention can help prevent more serious problems from developing and may reduce the need for extensive treatment later on. However, orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, and it is never too late to seek orthodontic care.
