American Association of Orthodontists now recommend that every child should see an Orthodontist at the age of 7 years. In the past, it was believed that parents obtained Orthodontist consultation only after all the primary/ baby teeth exfoliated. But recent studies show that kids at age 7 and up, when monitored by Orthodontist can prevent many developing malocclusions.
