Braces for Children
Setup An Early Intervention Consultation
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age 7. Though orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, timely treatment ensures maximum dental health.
Early detection of orthodontic problems can have a lifelong effect on a child’s smile and well-being. At Dr. Mitchell Orthodontics, we believe early examination and application of braces at a young age may help prevent any long-term complications that may arise as your child develops. Our compassionate staff excels at working with children of all ages and can help your child feel at ease during their orthodontic treatment.

Although a comprehensive dental exam will be necessary to gauge whether an orthodontic appliance is needed, there are ways to tell if your child has malocclusions on your own.
Some of the more common signs Indicating your child may need early orthodontic treatment:
- Inability to Clench Teeth
- Mouth Breathing
- Uneven Spacing Between Teeth
- Trouble Speaking or Pronouncing Words
- Exaggerated or Irregular Chewing and Biting
- Missing or Extra Teeth – Due to tooth decay, injuries, or inherited problems
Specific to children:
- Finger or thumb sucking – past the age of 5 – These habits can cause protrusion of the upper incisor teeth.
- Teeth erupting out of position – Can be guided to proper alignment.
A Beautiful Smile is a Great Start to Investing in Your Child’s Future
By catching these problems early, your child’s teeth will grow into a more comfortable position. The growth of the jaw can be guided, and any issues associated with an Underbite, Crossbite or Overbite can be avoided. Prompt treatments can also reduce the chances of impacted teeth and eliminate future speech or eating problems.
