Kids

One of the most common questions we get is:
What age should my child see an Orthodontist?
Age 7 is the magic number!
At this age, adult teeth are erupting and your child’s mouth is growing. Dr. Lang is an Orthodontic Specialist and is trained to spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth even while some baby teeth are still present. Not all children will need early intervention, therefore Dr. Lang will monitor the growth and development and begin treatment when your child is ready.

Early treatment allows Dr. Lang to:

Guide jaw growth

Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth

Create more space for crowded teeth

Improve the way lips meet

Correct thumb sucking and help improve speech problems

Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position

Improve appearance
