Consider an orthodontic evaluation for yourself and/or your child. The American Dental Association recommends your child see a general dentist as early as age 1 and an orthodontist by age 7, when craniofacial development (skull and face) has achieved 75 percent of its total adult size and the width of the jaw is virtually done growing. Delaying orthodontic evaluation until all the permanent teeth have come in can significantly compromise available treatment options.
Plus, if you have ever thought about improving your own smile, technological advances have afforded vast improvements in comfort, efficiency and speed of treatment! Pursue a smile that will empower your confidence and self-esteem. Orthodontic research has investigated how the mouth and teeth are such important metrics in esthetic evaluations. The literature positively correlates attractiveness with being perceived as more capable, intelligent, responsible, and socially well integrated.
