If you or your family needs orthodontic treatment, you may have questions about the process, procedure, and cost. There have been significant advances and improvements in braces and orthodontic appliances over the last decade or two. If you had orthodontic treatment in the past and are now looking into orthodontics again or for your child, you may be surprised by how much easier, more effective and more comfortable treatment will be.
Read on for some answers to our patient’s most commonly-asked questions. And, of course, please feel free to reach out to Dr. Rosenberg with any questions you may have.
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that every child see an orthodontist by age 7, or when they start getting permanent teeth. Because early intervention can help stop later problems, the orthodontist may want your child to return for periodic check-ups after more permanent teeth come in. Seeing an orthodontist for an initial consultation around age 7 can make treatment easier and quicker down the road.
