Child & Teen Treatment Philadelphia, PA

Child & Teen Treatment

Most professionals recommend a childs first visit to an orthodontist by age 7.  At this time, an orthodontist can begin to evaluate jaw growth, dental development, crowded teeth, joint health, speech problems, facial imbalances, and thumb habits.  Not all children benefit from braces at the same age.  Some do benefit from braces at a younger age, while most benefit from braces when all of the permanent teeth have erupted, usually between the ages of 10-13.  
When treatment is recommended, Dr. Neil will review your child’s specific treatment plan, goals of treatment, and treatment options, which include traditional metal braces, clear braces, and Invisalign Teen.
