When Should My Child Have An Orthodontic Evaluation?

Child-Friendly Marble Falls Pediatric Dentist

It’s a question that many moms and dads in Marble Falls debate: When should I take my child in for their first orthodontic evaluation? The answer may be a little earlier than you think.

We recommend bringing children in by the age of seven. Even if you don’t see any signs that your child will need braces. It’s essential to have an exam and X-rays to know exactly how tooth development is progressing.

How about dental visits for pediatric dental care? We recommend bringing your child to a family or pediatric dentist by the age of one.

Not only will your dentist want to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, but it’s also critical for little ones to get used to seeing the dentist.

Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your child will be less likely to require extensive restorative dental work.

If your child is uneasy about visiting Ritchie Dental Group, you might want to bring them in a few days before to visit our office. Call us at
