Orthodontists can enhance smiles at any age. However, The American Association of Orthodontists recommends scheduling your first appointment by age 7 or at the first sign of orthodontic problems. It is optimal to begin treatment early to ensure the best results. Even if you do not need any orthodontic treatment at this age, it is still helpful to receive an examination to determine when treatment should begin and catch any complications that may be developing.
Cooney Orthodontics offers a free tracking program for patients who are not yet ready for treatment. With this program, the patient is seen regularly to identify the best time to begin treatment. Our complimentary service also allows growth, development, and eruption to be monitored professionally.

Braces are an effective way of straightening teeth; however, patients can have some issues with eating certain foods, brushing, and flossing.
