26 Aug Check in On Your Smile For Back to School!
There is something so exciting about a new school year! A fresh new start, new classes, new wardrobe and a new season. So much change is in the air! It’s also the perfect time to explore the possibility of orthodontic treatment at Taunton Orthodontics. We can help you achieve a healthier, more confident and beautiful smile!
How can you tell if your child needs orthodontic treatment? The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children get an orthodontic checkup, no later than the age of seven years old. Around this age, orthodontists can pick up on jaw growth problems or issues with how the permanent teeth are coming in (even if your child is still sporting some of their baby teeth).
An article with Parents.com reminds us that it may be “tempting to skip the trip to an orthodontist if your child’s teeth look straight, but don’t, say the experts. An orthodontist can detect issues or bad habits such as tongue-thrusting or mouth-breathing, things a parent wouldn’t necessarily notice”.
Let’s start the new school year off on the right track, with a checkup for orthodontic treatment. Contact us for your complimentary consultation. Our orthodontic office cares for patients in Brooklin, Whitby, Ajax, Oshawa and across the Durham Region!
